Kompany urges concentration ahead of Christmas fixtures

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has warned his side not to become complacent as they head into the toughest patch of their season, ESPN reports.

The Belgian defender has been a key rock in the City defence and has watched on as his side’s attacking prowess has fired them to an unbeaten start to the season. Kompany now knows they have a tough schedule in their next eight games and believes if they can get over that hurdle, they have all the confidence to go on to further glory.

City welcome the also unbeaten Newcastle United after the international break, before three away trips to Napoli in the Champions League, Liverpool and Arsenal in the Carling Cup. Roberto Mancini’s men then host Norwich before a trio of more difficult fixtures with Bayern Munich at home in the Champions League and then Chelsea and Arsenal.

Kompany said: ‘We will hit a bad patch, like with every team. But you don’t necessarily have to lose just because you’re playing badly. Let’s just keep playing well for as long as possible. We’ve got many players here who have won titles at different levels, so that’s not a problem’.
