Liverpool are strongest team Man City have faced, declares Vincent Kompany
Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany says Liverpool are the strongest team the Citizens have faced this season
Vincent Kompany has described Liverpool as the strongest opponents that Manchester City have faced this season.
The Citizens closed the gap on second-placed Liverpool to a point after a 4-1 victory over Southampton at The Etihad.
I am not surprised at all [that they are challenging for the title]
Manuel Pellegrini’s men make the trip to Anfield next Sunday in a potential Premier League title decider.
And City captain Kompany isn’t surprised by Liverpool’s improvement this season.
“They are the strongest team that we have played this season,” Kompany told Match of the Day.
“They have a great squad and are not there by luck.
“We have different styles but the same philosophy of trying to score goals so I think it will be an entertaining game.
“It is hard to predict because so much is at stake, but we remember the game that we played at the Etihad and I am not surprised at all [that they are challenging for the title].
“Our strongest part of the season when we won the league [in 2011-2012] was when we had no other competitions to play in, and Liverpool have had that this season.”
