The Barclays Player of the Season knows he is just 90 minutes from leading City to the ultimate prize in domestic football - and he can't wait for the game to begin.
"We are determined and completely focused on what we have to do," he told City's website.
"The thing is, if I could've played the game against QPR the day after the Newcastle game, I would've done it.
"It's because the build-up to this weekend - a whole week between two games is very annoying. You just want to get it over with, but then again, it's part of what is going to make it so special, I hope."
