Toure delighted to help Man City win at Villa

Yaya Toure was delighted to get on the scoresheet for the first time this season in Manchester City's late, late win over Aston Villa.

Ivory Coast star Toure reacted to critics of his form by admitting he is only human, then pledging to help City chase down early-season league leaders Chelsea.

"I think it was amazing," Toure told Sky Sports of his match-winning strike. "If it was not me it would have been Aguero or Silva.

"The most important thing is for me to do my best. I'm keeping going: I play for a top side in Europe. And I'll just do my best to win things again this season.

"It's not so easy because you have to play every three days. I'm not a machine, I'm a man, but it's important to keep things going.

"I have great team-mates around me, and the most important thing is to do my best."
