Yaya Toure felt that Manchester City bounced back brilliantly with a 4-0 home win over Leeds United in the FA Cup on Sunday.

The Ivory Coast midfielder opened the scoring in the fifth minute before Sergio Aguero scored either side of a Carlos Tevez goal as the Premier League champions booked a quarter-final fixture with Barnsley for early next month.

The win comes after last weekend’s league defeat to Southampton and Toure was delighted with the response.

"I think [we reacted well], because in the first half we played very well, giving pressure to Leeds,” he told ESPN.

"We know [Leeds are] a very tough team, they play very good football and they are physically strong. I think today was a good response from Man City."
