Thomas Partey has called on Atletico Madrid to work harder in the wake of their 2-2 draw with Valencia on Friday night in La Liga

Los Rojiblancos established a 2-1 lead heading to the break, with Partey scoring a sublime second goal. 

They obviously could not hold on or extend their lead and were pegged back by Central African Republic International Geoffrey Kondogbia's effort in the second half.

“Valencia play well and are strong at their stadium," Partey told the club website after the match.

"They had the ball and we tried to play our game. 

"We have to keep working hard because results will come if we do so."

Aleti have just one win in their last five league matches, drawing two and losing two and stay in fourth place in the standings. 

Their next assignment is a crunch Champions League Round of 16 first leg tie at home to Liverpool on Tuesday.
