Yaya Toure has warned Manchester City's Barclays Premier League rivals that Roberto Mancini's squad has such strength and depth, that he feels the club's second-string is good enough to challenge for a UEFA Champions League spot.

The 28-year-old Ivorian international has been in scintillating form for the Citizens in recent weeks, helping them to extend their five-point lead at the top of table.

And as the saying goes, winning breeds confidence, to the point that Toure is now adamant that his teammates have what it takes to be champions in May.

"We have more than one team now - we have got two teams," he insisted. "If you see the team that beat Wolves 5-2 in the Carling Cup, people said it was the second team.

"For me, it is not the second team because everybody is good enough to play. We have got two teams now that can both play in the Champions League.

"We have got a fantastic squad and everybody is improving. For me it is amazing. We have a chance of winning the Premier League."

City take on Liverpool and Chelsea in their next two away trips, with home games against Newcastle and Norwich sandwiched in between, and Toure feels these games could determine their chances of winning the title.

"We have tough, tough games and coming up in a couple of weeks we have Liverpool, Newcastle at home, Arsenal and after that we play Chelsea," he continued. "It will be very difficult.

"I came here because I wanted to make history. I want to be part of history at this club. For me it's the most important thing.

"We try not to think about going unbeaten, because the Premier League's not easy and other teams will try to beat us. But we hope we'll continue unbeaten."
