John Stones pleased with Manchester City form

John Stones pleased with Manchester City form”

The Manchester City defender has had a solid second season since joining from Everton, and looks likely to start the match at Wembley.

"I've spoken to Leroy [Sane] today, and he's buzzing about the chance to play at Wembley, and having played against them twice before, we know a little bit more about them, but we also have a few Brazilians in the team at City in Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho and Ederson, so I know what they're also capable of".

"Vinny has his own style - I had a different style when I played alongside him, hence the reason we probably worked so well together".

"He doesn't seem to get fazed by anything and always seems calm and he never hides - he's got everything and he'll get to wherever he wants to get because we have to remember he's still only 23".

Despite being rocked by a succession of injury setbacks, Gareth Southgate is sticking with his plan to run with a three-man defence in these games and beyond.

Stones, who is now away with England ahead of upcoming worldwide friendlies against Germany and Brazil, believes he has never stopped developing during his time as a City player. You've got adapt to what's put in front of you and be comfortable enough to be adaptable in however and whatever position you play and whatever system you play.

"For me, if you want to do that, that's fine".

'I feel like I have been developing from the start of last season when I first went to City.

"I don't think there's ever been a point where I haven't been developing and learning".

"That doesn't mean it's always been good and learning in a positive way".

"I feel every day I go out on the training pitch there's something to get out of it".

The ex-City and England defender told the Blues' official website: "Stones can obviously defend but not everyone is a Vincent Kompany and there aren't many defenders who will be as good as Vinny in one-on-ones, in the air and so on".

"But if you want to play for me, I want you to keep doing the things that make you different".
