Roberto Mancini's men ended a run of three straight defeats in all competitions to beat the Baggies 2-0 courtesy of a Mario Balotelli brace.

The result lifted City back to within three points of fierce foes United, who travel to Eastlands on Wednesday for an eagerly-awaited encounter.

Toure accepts that City cannot yet be compared to their more successful local rivals but he is hoping there will be a power shift in Manchester over the coming years.

"It is going to be a massive game and we want to play very well, but we know United are a very strong team and I think it is going to be a big, big derby and we will enjoy it," he told Sky Sports.

Asked if United were the stronger team, Toure replied: "It is difficult to say.

"They have been winning trophies and we haven't done that yet, and I think as soon as we start winning trophies we will see what is the judgement between both teams."
