Man City boss Guardiola: We're speaking with Kompany and his agent

Man City boss Guardiola: We're speaking with Kompany and his agent

Defending champions City trail Liverpool by two points heading into their game in hand at home to Leicester City on Monday, with the Reds winning late at Newcastle United on Saturday.

"It's not about the amount of goals you score it's about when you score them". Today it was necessary.

The goal came as a huge relief for Pep Guardiola's side, who had found it hard to create many chances against Leicester until Kompany's 70th minute strike.

Kelechi Iheanacho has been blamed by Leicester manager, Brendan Rodgers, after he missed a last minute chance to dent Manchester City's Premier League title hopes.

"From the very start, we had the right intensity to try and win this game".

"Last season was incredible but this season we are against an incredible team, that's why I'm so delighted".

"We were putting pressure on, upping the tempo but found the last pass hard". There is nothing Liverpool, at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers in a fixture which can take them to 97 points, can then do to stop them.

"I'm really happy for the team".

I was talking with Lee Charnley this week and we will let you know as soon as we have more news. Virgil van Dijk opened the scoring on 13 minutes.

Many believe tonight is the last real chance of City losing points - and it's a slim chance at that. "Now we have a final to play in Brighton, Nothing is won yet".

Kompany had never scored from outside the box in 36 previous attempts in the Premier League and he has been here 11 years.

"We've done the same job, all the club, and the players, of course, are the reason why", he said. I'm just trying to contribute and today we went one step closer. I think they're the best two sides I've faced as a manager. This club is what it is because of people like Vincent.

Leicester's marked improvement since Rodgers took charge in February was on show in an impressive display from the visitors as City were made to sweat but just got over the line for a vital three points.

"Burnley - we didn't concede one corner, one shot on target, we controlled the game". "We are away and we saw Brighton had a good game at Arsenal".

"I suggest what we have to do but the rest is in their hands". We are going to prepare well.
