Man City defender Toure: Chelsea striker Drogba just keeps getting better

Manchester City defender Kolo Toure knows they face a massive test this weekend against Chelsea.

Toure has earmarked Ivory Coast team-mate Didier Drogba as Chelsea's biggest threat and he feels last season's top scorer is better than ever.

"He's a goalscorer," said Toure. "All he thinks about is scoring goals. But this season he is passing well and making a lot of assists as well.

"That makes him a much better player.

"It seems like he's getting better with age because he's such an intelligent player. He's had to change his game. He knows he needs more help from his team-mates now. He used to like to do a lot himself, but now he shows he cares about the team and that's really good.

"I know his game well, but he's still difficult to play against because he's so powerful," he said. "He's playing so well and with all these assists, he seems to have improved his style of playing.

"At the moment, I'd say he's on fire. So we're going to have to defend really well as a team to stop him. We're going to have to be really strong on Saturday."
