Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure insists there's no reason to be downbeat after their 1-1 draw at Stoke City.

Peter Crouch's stunning 30-yard volley gave Stoke the lead, before Toure's 25-yard response levelled things up.

He told ESPN afterwards: "It's very important not to panic.

"We were up against a very good team. The most important thing is to work hard and be hopeful. If we can take points like this, they will be vital.

"Stoke are always strong to play against and they caused us a lot of problems."
