Kompany eyes title win against Man United
Posted on: March 13, 2018 /
Pep Guardiola’s men could clinch the crown at the Etihad Stadium against none other than their arch-rivals, a chance Kompany is raring to grab
Vincent Kompany says Manchester City’s squad are well aware they could have a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” to win the Premier League title against rivals Manchester United next month. City cruised to a straightforward 2-0 win over Stoke City on Monday, with David Silva scoring both goals at the bet365 Stadium.
The result edges them closer to their seemingly inevitable Premier League title triumph and restores their 16-point lead over United. City are not in league action again until March 31 when they face Everton and then they host their local rivals on April 7, a match in which they could clinch the title. And the significance of that is not lost on Kompany.
“I think everybody in the blue side of Manchester knows it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity,” City’s captain told Sky Sports.
“But steady, we’ve one more game before United, which will be difficult, and then we see. I’m sure it won’t be handed to us.
“It’s that time of year where you feel every win takes you one step close to your goal. The manager said it before the game, we’ll look to keep this standard until end of season and hopefully into next season as well.
