“Manchester City can’t afford any more slip-ups” says Vincent Kompany
"We are not happy with the result or the performance"
March 4th, 2016
Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany has stated that no more slip-ups can be allowed as the business end of the season fast approaches.
The Citizens slipped up in their quest to close the gap on the league leaders when they humbled 3-0 by Liverpool on Wednesday and while this defeat leaves them ten points adrift of table-topping Leicester City, there are still ten games left to play.
Indeed, Kompany admitted that things could have been much worse for City, given that both Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal suffered defeat in their midweek outings.
“We can’t make any more mistakes but I didn’t expect all the other teams to lose. It is an awkward season – good for the fans but you can’t predict anything can you? If there is one guarantee for this season it is nothing is sure,” he is quoted as saying by PA.
“If you look at this result it could have been worse, although we are not happy with the result or the performance. But at the same time it is a tough place for us to come. We are not going to draw too many conclusions from this game.
“We will see what is happening at the weekend; Arsenal and Spurs are playing against each other, we are at home to Aston Villa. We need to get the three points and maybe Leicester will drop some points.”
Manchester City face struggling Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon and Manuel Pellegrini will be confident of putting to an end a run of three consecutive defeats.
