Mourinho has tried to increase the pressure on City, but Kompany believes any side in the top four can win it.

Chelsea have a four-point lead over second-placed Liverpool, with City fourth in the table, six points off the lead.

Mourinho's men could extend their advantage to nine points this weekend as City play Wigan in the FA Cup on Sunday.

The Portuguese manager claims Manuel Pellegrini's side are favourites for the title because they have two games in hand and "destiny in their hands."

Kompany, however, has laughed off Mourinho's claims and says he's not bothered by what opposition managers have to say.

"It's very simple in football, the winner is always right and the loser is always wrong," Kompany told Sky Sports.

"Unless a manager puts on his football boots and starts playing as a striker, I'm never really worried about what they can say.

"As I say, there are four teams and Liverpool is one that can win it as well. Maybe City and Chelsea have a slight edge, but then again Liverpool have just as much momentum.

"Arsenal will probably get the momentum back again when they win again, so it's a good league for the neutrals. I think it will be tight until the end."

othing screams 'Panic!!' when your new manager brings Fellaini on as a sub for your star signing of the summer and within 5 minutes you concede the winner. I know it is only the first game in but I would seriously be sh1**ng myself I was a Man Utd supporter. This has the potential of being very nasty indeed.

n the words of Pete Townsend, meet the new boss, the same as the old boss. Though I would comment that it's 3 more points than we picked up in the same fixture last year, so that's a 100% improvement.
