Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini did not trust himself to speak to media after being angered by events during his side's 1-1 draw at Stoke on Saturday.

Although they regained top spot in the Barclays Premier League, City dropped two crucial points as they were forced to reply to a sensational Peter Crouch volley. Yaya Toure struck a superb equaliser but Mancini was angered by Stoke's rugged approach, and an incident in the first half when Dean Whitehead clashed with David Silva.

City first team coach David Platt said: "It's not a case of being too angry - he's just wary that he might say something that gets him in hot water. It's about the way the game unfolded. It is very difficult when you come here and sometimes you look for a bit of protection. It's a bit hot afterwards but once he's calmed down he'll be fine."
