Manchester City's Kolo Toure plots revenge after rivals United slip-up at Wolves

08 February 2011 01:31
Kolo Toure hopes Manchester United losing their unbeaten run at Wolves will cause the wheels to come off their title challenge just as it did Arsenal's in 2004.

On a mission: Toure

Sir Alex Ferguson's side were beaten at the 30th time of asking at Molineux and Manchester City defender Toure who was part of Arsenal's Invincibles in 2003/04 feels United will be vulnerable when the teams meet at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Arsene Wenger's team won just two of their seven games after losing their unbeaten run to United.

'When you're on a good run like that and you lose, everything becomes harder. It shakes your confidence. Maybe that can happen to them. It was difficult to lose that game.

'The circumstances were hard because they got a penalty, which we didn't think was a penalty. For us, it was really difficult to lose to United. I think it's a great chance for me to get my revenge.

'I have spent most of my career in England battling United, first at Arsenal, now at City. They are always at the top. Now we have new players, we are capable of fighting against them and that has been shown with our results against them over the last 18 months.'
