Yaya Toure insists winning just one trophy this season would not be a failure for Manchester City.

Despite lifting the Capital One Cup with victory over Sunderland, the pressure is on Manuel Pellegrini's side to salvage their season by winning the Premier League title.

"We just need to keeping working and try to win all of the games," said Toure.

"We know it's going to be difficult. But when you lose games, you learn more about yourselves. Sometimes when you lose it's not bad.

"We have to move on and think about the Premier League. With the players we have I still think we can do it.

"A failure? Why? Why would it be a failure? We have already won a cup, so you can't say that.

"Football is a competition and only one team can win each of them. So don't say we would be failures because we have won something already, but now we want to win more.

"Teams come and they are desperate to beat us, though, so it is always tough. Teams are very motivated against us and you have to understand we are not a machine."
