Vincent Kompany: Focused on Tuesday's clash at the Etihad

Roberto Mancini's side take on Wigan at Wembley on Saturday with the chance of winning their second FA Cup in three seasons.

But first up is Tuesday's Premier League home clash with West Brom, with a win needed to secure a place in next season's Champions League for second-placed City.

Kompany told reporters: "Saturday is a big, big day for the club, it's massive and everyone realises that.

"But it would be nice to win the game against West Brom first. That would set us up really nicely to focus on the final.

"It's really important that we qualify for the Champions League first.

"There is no other way to think about this game.

"Until we are safe for that Champions League spot we have to play the game like every other game."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
