Relief for Man City goalscorer Kompany after injury nightmare

Guardiola praised his captain, Vincent Kompany, who has missed most of the season through injury but headed in from a corner to score that opening goal, his first since August 2015.

After a goalless first half, during which City felt they should have had a penalty after Fraser Forster tripped Sane, Kompany broke the deadlock in the 55th minute.

Two soon became three following another De Bruyne assist, this time racing to the byline and floating the ball into a risky area for Aguero to power home his 11th goal in 11 outings.

City, meanwhile, continued to help their cause for a top-four finish, as the win moved them into third place above Liverpool on 64 points.

"That's why I'm so so glad for the fans we have, because for the first time in my life I have experienced that".

When Pep Guardiola took over at Manchester City last summer, one of the last players anyone would have expected him to drop was Sergio Aguero.

Guardiola says he is not prioritising the Cup for the chance to win a trophy in his first season but underlined the importance of developing a winning mentality by referencing the club's trip to the Far East last summer.

That's right, the fleet-footed youngster, who has played as an attacker for his entire career, could be used in an orthodox role for Die Mannschaft but, speaking to Manchester Evening News, Sane is not exactly keen on the idea.

"We have to believe in ourselves and tactically we have to play for each other defensively and offensively".

Everton and Manchester United are six points further back.

All that was left for City to do was see out the opposition in the remainder, which they duly did thanks to the solid defensive work of star performer Kompany. Finally, in recent games he has played he has delivered performances and hopefully he can stay fit.

"Every manager Vincent Kompany has played under knows what an important player he is", Guardiola told the BBC.

"In Spain, especially in Germany, the pressure is higher to the players, to the manager, to everybody - here it is calm", said the two-time Champions League victor. "It's a really good test for us".
