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.

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.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

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.
