Kompany Insists City Remain Focused

1 year ago

Despite winning the first silverware of the season, Vincent Kompany says Manchester City will remain fully focused on the tasks in hand.

Victory over Arsenal at Wembley on Sunday handed Pep Guardiola his first trophy during his reign at the Etihad, with City still fighting for two other prizes.

Baring an end of season collapse, City are well on course to take the title and they are on the brink of qualifying for the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Although the Blues hold a very healthy 13-point lead at the top of the Premier League, Guardiola’s men face a tricky spell of matches in the coming weeks.

It starts with a trip to the Emirates on Thursday to face an Arsenal team that will be seeking revenge and Arsene Wenger’s men have lost just one home league game – against Manchester United – this season.

The champions elect then play host to Chelsea at the weekend, three tough looking games iat the end of March/start of April.

The Carabao Cup winners are away to Everton – where the lost 4-0 last season – on March 31, before the Manchester derby on April 7 and then a clash with Tottenham at Wembley on April 14.

Skipper Kompany insists they will try to keep going at the same level, saying: “We still have the league to play for – a couple of important games coming up now, Arsenal and Chelsea – and the Champions League, which is still a massive objective.

“We’ll have to face some really tough opposition, hopefully. So to say we have the ambition, yes, but to say we’re anywhere near, steady, take our time.”
