After victory over West Bromwich Albion, Kolo Toure says Manchester City are now fully focused on Wednesday's derby.

After an intense fortnight spent in the media spotlight, Toure says the players can now focus on the Manchester derby having dispatched the Baggies in such a comprehensive manner.

"It was really important we beat West Brom because it's very difficult for a team with aspirations of challenging at the top to lose three games in a row," he told City's website.

"This win has made us very happy and put us in the perfect frame of mind ahead of Wednesday's derby.

"We deserved to win because we started the game really well and were passing the ball round nicely. We controlled most of the match and scored goals at important times."
