Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry believes that his team are finding their best form after beating Stoke City in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry has declared that his side can use their late FA Cup win at Stoke City as a catalyst to chase a domestic double this season.

Roberto Mancini's men ended a poor recent record at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday with a 1-0 success thanks to Pablo Zabaleta's decisive strike.

The Premier League holders are yet to concede a goal in 2013 and have won their last five matches in all competitions including a 2-0 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates.

Barry believes that City are finding form and confidence at just the right time.

He told The Mirror: "It's obviously a fantastic win. I'm not too sure in my career that I've ever won here, so it's a fantastic result.

"To get rid of the hoodoo at Arsenal, winning there, and it's a while since we won at Stoke as well, so they're great victories."

City return to league action on Tuesday against Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road.
