Vincent Kompany: Manchester City captain offers Liverpool advice

Liverpool took advantage of no European football last season to mount a sustained title challenge before finishing in second, two points adrift of City.

Brendan Rodgers has bolstered his squad over the summer to cope with the increased demands this season and Kompany is waiting to see how Liverpool perform.

"When the Champions League comes in, the Premier League will be a different competition all over for Liverpool," said Kompany.

"It's tricky for all the clubs that are involved in the Champions League because it will get more demanding as the weeks go on."

City welcome Liverpool to the Etihad Stadium next Monday and Kompany is hoping the champions can build on an opening game win at Newcastle United.

He added: "It's the first time for me that this home fixture comes so early in the season.

"But if we can perform like we did at Newcastle, we will be hoping to get the three points at home. Newcastle was important for us because it takes a lot of pressure away from the Liverpool game."

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
