Vincent Kompany was relieved to see Manchester City emerge with a 'massive' three points in Sunday's enthralling encounter with Arsenal.

City triumphed 1-0 at the Etihad Stadium thanks to a second-half strike from David Silva, but the Gunners felt they deserved at least a point.

Although City had numerous chances to put the game to bed, the visitors also peppered Joe Hart and had a goal ruled out due to a narrow offside.

City, though, emerged triumphant, and reclaimed their spot at the top of the Barclays Premier League table, following Manchester United's victory earlier in the day.

And Kompany realises the importance of the hard earned three points over Arsene Wenger's spirited outfit.

"It was massive for us, we didn't underestimate the importance of this game and we're happy with the result and to keep a clean sheet," the City skipper told Sky Sports.

"We've been going for a lot of goals and could have scored many, but we didn't finish the chances we had today, although individually we won most of our challenges."

Next up for City are Stoke City, who travel to Manchester on Wednesday, while a trip to the Hawthorns awaits Roberto Mancini's side on Boxing Day.
