City, who beat Newcastle on Boxing Day, are back in action as they travel to Stones' former club Everton on Monday.
The Yorkshireman has fond memories of his time at Goodison Park, where he made his name after moving from Barnsley in 2013.
He said: "I loved my time there. The time I spent there was a vital time in my career. It was a great environment to be in and I have a lot of great memories.
"Now they are a great team and the new manager coming in has put his stamp on the team. They are making great progress and I am sure it will be a great match when we come up against them."
