The Premier League champions travel to local rivals Manchester United tomorrow evening.
The defender told the club's official website: "It's always an important game between the two teams, so we'll be hoping for a good performance and hoping that we can win at Old Trafford again.
"It's near the end of the season and it would mean a lot to our fans if we beat United and then if we were to win the FA Cup, it would be a good season for us.
"[Last season's 6-1 win over United] was a great moment for us. We were in a great moment, it was a big victory for us and for everyone involved with Manchester City. But at this moment it is different, they are first and there is a big gap. They are confident right now, so it will be a different game.
City head into the game second in the league table, 15 points behind United.
