Manchester City defender Kolo Toure has revealed the Blues have come up with a secret weapon to stop Stoke at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.

City entertain Tony Pulis' outfit knowing they only need a point to secure top spot on Christmas Day for the first time since 1929. Although they emerged victorious in May's FA Cup final meeting between the teams at Wembley, plus the Barclays Premier League encounter three days later, Roberto Mancini has not tended to find Stoke particularly easy to overcome.

But Toure thinks they have found a new method of control, and the Ivorian said: "We all know about Stoke. They will be even more motivated because we beat them in the FA Cup final, so we are going to take it really seriously. But we have found a way to deal with them. I am just not going to say what it is."
