Yaya Toure says that Manchester City answered their critics following their win over Aston Villa.

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure is pleased to keep the pressure on Manchester United in the title race after their win over Aston Villa.

The champions recorded a 1-0 victory at Villa Park on Monday night, thanks to a goal just before half time from Carlos Tevez.

"There was quite big pressure and I think today we needed to deliver," Toure told Sky Sports News.

"Villa played very well in the first half but after that I think we managed and it was a great three points.

"Today we showed we have a fantastic squad, we are sad with Jack [Rodwell, who went off injured], but this is an important day for us. Twelve points is a lot but it's not finished."

City host Barnsley in the FA Cup on Saturday.
