Manchester City’s captain Vincent Kompany is happy with how his team has started this season but he believes that there is still more to come from his side.
City are currently third on the table behind Chelsea and Manchester United. However, Kompany thinks that consistent champions’ performances are yet to come.
They achieved their first clean sheet of the season over a 3 – 0 win over Sunderland and Kompany wants more of this.
The Belgium defender said, “We are exactly where we wanted to be, second or third place and there are still a lot of games to play. We are just getting through them.
“There will be moments where we will really switch it on. It’s already positive for us to pick up so many points when people say maybe we didn’t play our best games, but I think we have to be happy with the results.
“If we can still step it up, it’s going to be a great season for us again.”
Kompany’s form and fitness has not been very well season. He missed a few matches due to his calf injury leaving Manchester City dodgy at the defence.
“I’ve always been good. It’s just that we set such a ridiculously high standard last season that people are expecting a lot,” Kompany said. “That’s fair enough, I’ve got no problem with that. I just keep working hard. I never really change my vision of the game, I always try to give my best.”
City will next travel to West Brom and will try their level best to ensure their second away win.
“I just look at the league now and we are in a good position. We’ve done what we needed to do and we’ve managed to keep ourselves at the right place,”added the 26-year old defender. “Chelsea are obviously doing great at the moment. We never said it wasn’t going to be a tough season.”
If I were to pick one man from Manchester City who led them to the title, it was definitely Kompany. His nerves of steel and clever captaincy led City to their dramatic win of the Barclays Premier League title.
