Man City defender Stones fires warning at Chelsea

John Stones has warned Chelsea that Manchester City have the 'passion and desire' to win this season's Champions League.

The two English clubs will face off in the showpiece event in Istanbul on May 29.

Speaking ahead of the clash, Stones admitted his teammates would be nervous, but that wouldn't stop them from giving their all to try and win the club's first European title.

He said: "I'm sure everyone will be nervous but the lads wouldn't be where they are without knowing how to control those things, big pressure, big games.

"We've got the calibre of players for this occasion. It is a final and we've been in so many finals. We've got the passion and desire to win it.

"To finish the Premier League on a high like that is what we needed and to go into the next game, scoring so many goals and keeping a clean sheet, is perfect."
