Kompany expects City to gain momentum

Published Add your comment

Manchester City midfielder Vincent Kompany expects the team to build up some momentum over the remaining weeks of the season.

Kompany believes the point gained at Liverpool on Sunday could mark a turning point in their season. Next up are Copenhagen in the UEFA Cup on Thursday at Eastlands with the scores locked at 2-2 following the first leg.

Kompany said: "Liverpool was a big credit to us. For the first time in a while we were almost perfect in the second half. We don't have to tell anybody how difficult it is to get a result like that at Anfield, and that's two good performances coming after the 2-2 draw in Copenhagen. That's something for us to build on."

He added: "We looked to be a really strong side. We have the weapons and tools we will need to get the results we want.

"That's the kind of performance we needed and the sort we should be expecting from ourselves, especially away from home."

Kompany added: "The collective spirit was there for all to see at Anfield. The players ran many kilometres and worked their butts off.

"It's a very good team spirit, but it's also important to get things said - players want to improve themselves and the group.

"So it's important you talk about things from a collective aspect. It's to be expected from a team aiming to be top."
