Toure: Man City well up for Chelsea test

Manchester City defender Kolo Toure says they're up for this weekend's clash with leaders Chelsea.

Big-spending City did the double over Chelsea last season and Toure is optimistic they can bring the champions back down to earth at Eastlands this weekend.

"We were delighted to beat them twice last season and we hope to do it again," said Toure. "It's going to be a really exciting game.

"We need to make sure we take something from it. If we can get one point that would be great, but if we can get all three like we did twice last season, that would be fantastic.

"The manager wants us to work really hard on defending every day in training because when you defend well, it gives you the chance to win games.

"We don't concede many goals because we are really tight as a unit and work really hard for each other. We hope we can keep going like this.

"What we will have to do is defend as a team, like we have been doing, and stay really focused. Then, when we can, we'll have to be really aggressive with them."
