The Manchester City midfielder has been sidelined since last December after he sustained the long-term problem against Watford at the Etihad stadium, and has been battling back to full fitness since then.
Pep Guardiola is beginning to bring his successful style of football from Barcelona to Manchester City after a trophyless first season at the club, believes Yaya Toure.
"I think we find a hard opponent who close the line, they don't attack, they don't open and I think it was good training for that because the games we produced against Madrid and Tottenham were quite open".

The Citizens' first new arrival ahead of the 2017/18 season was ex-Monaco attacker Bernardo Silva - a player who proved his quality in the previous campaign. "In those terms, we're so happy".
The reason given by sporting director Txiki Begiristain is so that Guardiola has the chance to put players who were on global duty for most of the summer through a training camp. "The game we had against West Ham is the typical type of game we're going to have usually in the Premier League and maybe in Europe".
And as the build-up to Saturday's Premier League opener away at Brighton continues, Guardiola revealed how grateful he was to the City board for their work in clinching the signing of Bernardo. Their Costa Bravo Trophy match-up with Girona is scheduled for 15 August.
"We have had some players away on worldwide duty this summer, which means Pep hasn't had the chance to work for long with the whole squad".
