Kompany: United win the start

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany says the club's victory over neighbours Manchester United will pale into insignificance if they don't win the Barclays Premier League.

Roberto Mancini's men are now considered favourites for the title after a thumping win over United at Old Trafford.

City face back-to-back matches with Wolverhampton Wanderers this week, both in the Carling Cup and the league, and the Belgian defender believes the double header could prove to be more important than the sole win over United.


"It was one of those days where you've written history, but it's not the greatest goal this season," Kompany said.

"The greatest goal for us is to hopefully be champions and lift trophies, so that's when we'll celebrate. It was a beautiful day and we made history, but it was only three points. That's how we have to look at it.

"It was only three points and maybe the game against Wolves is more important."

With a five-point gap at the top of the league, City have the opportunity to gain a foothold in the title race with games over Wolves, newly promoted Queens Park Rangers and currently unbeaten Newcastle United, before facing the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal later in the year.
