Vincent Kompany has warned his Manchester City team-mates they cannot afford to be contented on their huge Premier League lead.
Kompany said: “I don’t know if everyone will remember but it was six games left and we were eight points behind, so that’s why I am always the first to come in and say, ‘No guys, we can’t really take the foot off the gas.’ I really don’t want that.
“We push, we push, we push, and no one has the right to let their performance down or their guard down.”
“It’s the first time we have been ahead like this,” said Kompany. “Honestly, I don’t feel too much difference, but it’s a bit too early to draw any conclusions.
“But I do feel like we have been in much more high-pressure environments, [like] when we had to play United and we were three points behind. Those are the games that are completely different to any others you will play in your life.
“But at this moment in time we have got the chance. We are in a position where we can just focus on our football, not anything else, and winning the game and having the performance at the same time. It’s a bit different, but the desire to win is there.”
