Vincent Kompany says Manchester City are mentally prepared for the weekend clash with Arsenal following their first league defeat of the season on Monday night.

The Blues were beaten 2-1 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge to bring their unbeaten in to an end, but still retain top spot in the Barclays Premier League.

However, City face another difficult encounter on Sunday, when resurgent Arsenal travel to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

But, insists Kompany, he and his teammates are ready for the Gunners, having moved on from the loss against Chelsea.

"Everybody is already fired up for Arsenal and that's what we want now, to play football again on Sunday," the City skipper told Sky Sports News.

"That's the main thing for us - everybody is ready for the next game."

City could find themselves in second place by the time they face Arsenal, with Manchester United due to play Queens Park Rangers on Sunday lunchtime.

United are only two points behind their local rivals following Chelsea's victory, while a win for Arsenal in Manchester will see them climb as high as third.
