Kompany revels in Manchester City derby win but insists Premier League title race is not over
Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has revealed his delight at scoring the winning goal in Monday’s Manchester derby but insists the race to win the Premier League title will go to the last game of the season, the Daily Telegraph has reported.
Kompany headed home a corner on late in the first-half to give Roberto Mancini victory over Sir Alex Ferguson and take City top of the table on goal difference. But the City skipper is now targeting two wins from the club’s final two games of the season to clinch what would be a first league title for the Blues of Manchester in 42 years.
The Belgium international said: “We've been waiting for this moment. It’s far from over and we know that, but to give our fans two wins over United this season...we have to finish it off and we have to do it over the next two games.
City next face Champions League contenders Newcastle United at the Sports Direct Arena, the site of a 3-0 Manchester United defeat earlier in the season, and then end the campaign at home to relegation-threatened Queens Park Rangers, knowing they only need to better United’s last two results to finish above their cross-city rivals.
