Vincent Kompany believes Liverpool are top of the Premier League on merit.

Third-placed Manchester City make the trip to Anfield on Sunday as the Citizens bid to move to within a point of the league leaders.

I have a lot of respect for Liverpool and they are not at the top of the league by luck

Vincent Kompany

Liverpool have collected 43 points from a possible 48 this season, with a 1-0 loss to Southampton and a 2-2 draw with Aston Villa the only blotches on their home record.

And City captain Kompany admitted Manuel Pellegrini’s side are facing a big challenge this weekend.

“They have been on a fantastic run and we know we have to be focused and leave the pitch at the end knowing we’ve given everything because there is so much at stake in this game,” Kompany said.

“I have a lot of respect for Liverpool and they are not at the top of the league by luck, but my only concern is making sure we play the best we can and that we come away with a positive result. This is a great challenge for us.”
