Toure: Hopefully United attack more next season

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure taunted
rivals Manchester United, calling on them to attack
more next season following the goalless Premier
League derby.
Thursday's Manchester derby at the Etihad
Stadium was a dull affair as 10-man United held
City to a scoreless stalemate in the battle for
Champions League qualification.
Jose Mourinho's United adopted a counter-
attacking approach, happy to have players behind
the ball but City were unable to make the
breakthrough, despite dictating the play and seeing
Marouane Fellaini sent off late.
Away fans were seen celebrating the draw as fifth-
placed United stayed within a point of City and
Toure believes it is further proof of the shift in
power in Manchester.
"It is a big change because in the past United were
always able to dominate," he said. "They were
always able to control and win games, and seeing
the fans celebrating like that it shows that City
have come close.
"Of course, the history and achievements of United
is much stronger but we are coming.
"They know now we are difficult to play and they
tried to do their best to defend and use the counter-
attack.
"To be honest we played well but when you don't
win it is difficult to take it."
Asked about United's potential improvement next
season: "For sure. United are building something
very interesting. We have to be aware of that but I
think City are going to be much, much stronger as
well.
"Next year we are going to expect more and I hope
United are going to attack a little bit more."
