Kompany: Nerves not to blame

Published Add your comment

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany defiantly insists title-race nerves are not getting to his team-mates.

March proved a costly month for Roberto Mancini's men with a defeat at Swansea and frustrating draws against Stoke and Sunderland handing the initiative to rivals Manchester United. City could, at least temporarily, have returned to the top of the table on Saturday, but their failure to see off the Black Cats means United could move five points clear on Monday.

Kompany said on City TV: "It was not a good performance and we didn't do enough to win the game. It is not nerves - there is nobody in the team who has not been in this situation before in another league. So, it wasn't nerves, we didn't do enough."
