Man City defender Stones: I know what to expect from Ibrahimovic

Manchester City defender John Stones says he's up for his clash with Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

After keeping the Swedish striker quiet when he played for Everton in a 0-0 draw against United in Wayne Rooney's testimonial in early August, Stones is confident of doing the same, especially with the advice he will receive fro master tactician Pep Guardiola.

He said: "Everton played United before I came to City in a charity match for Wayne Rooney and I was up against Ibrahimovic, so I've had experience of playing against him before.

“And hopefully I can figure out what he's going to do if he plays or, if I play, which I hopefully will do. It will be an exciting game with a lot of big stars on the pitch, and I'm sure it'll be a great watch for the fans who are going over to the game."
