Vincent Kompany: Shrugs off Mourinho talk

Vincent Kompany: Shrugs off Mourinho talk

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."

Find out on Saturday Night Football if Chelsea can extend their title lead when they take on Tottenham - live coverage from Stamford Bridge starts at 5pm on Sky Sports 1HD and Sky 3D.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
