Kompany: No more mistakes


Manchester City cannot afford anymore slip ups if they are to remain in the Premier League title race, captain Vincent Kompany has warned.

City's 3-0 defeat at Liverpool was their third successive loss in the league but result was not as bad as it could have been as both Tottenham and Arsenal lost on the same night.

The Blues are ten points behind leaders Leicester but they have a game in hand of their title rivals and Kompany believes they are still in the race, providing they do not make any more mistakes.

"We can't make any more mistakes but I didn't expect all the other teams to lose," he said.

"It is an awkward season - good for the fans but you can't predict anything can you? If there is one guarantee for this season it is nothing is sure."

Tottenham host Arsenal in the midday kick-off before City welcome relegation-threatened Aston Villa to the Etihad Stadium and Kompany admits they must get maximum points to keep up the pressure on their rivals.

"If you look at this result it could have been worse, although we are not happy with the result or the performance," he stressed.

"We will see what is happening at the weekend; Arsenal and Spurs are playing against each other, we are at home to Aston Villa.

"We need to get the three points and maybe Leicester will drop some points."
