Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure is to meet with the head of FIFA's anti-racism taskforce on Sunday in light of the abuse he was subjected to in Moscow earlier this week.

FIFA vice president Jeffrey Webb will attend City's clash at Chelsea, where he hopes to discuss the racial abuse Toure suffered during his side's Champions League win over CSKA Moscow.

UEFA have charged CSKA over Wednesday's incident.

Webb said: ''I have asked to meet Yaya Toure. For me it's about how he felt and I would like to speak to him first to find out what his experience was.''
