Man City skipper Toure excited by Arsenal Cup draw

Manchester City captain Kolo Toure is excited about their Carling Cup quarterfinal draw against Arsenal.

The Blues already have September's superb 4-2 win over the Gunners under their belts to boost their confidence, but their skipper thinks they will have to raise their game to make into the semi-finals.

Toure told City's website: "I'm excited about it, but we have to admit that when we played against Arsenal earlier in the season, we played well but it was a game that could have finished 4-4! Yes, we scored some goals but we let them have so many chances. We were lucky that we took our chances and they did not.

"I think we need to analyse that game, we may have won it but we could have been better. We could have controlled it a lot more and defended better. That's what we are going to have to do again because it's going to be a really tough game."
