Kompany on beating Brighton
Manchester City have a chance to earn their fourth Premier League title this Sunday.
While Pep Guardiola’s side cannot reach their impressive points total that saw them crowned champions last season, they can still earn a superb 98 points.
To ensure that they win a second league title under Pep, City need to beat Brighton.
Should City lose or draw, they will then have to hope that Liverpool slip up against Wolves.
Heading into the Brighton tie, Vincent Kompany has told City what they must do to ensure that they are once again crowned Premier League champions:
“It feels like every [title win] that came before. You have to think about the simple things, such as Brighton having a bunch of strengths and weaknesses and have to find a way to deal with the strengths and exploit the weaknesses.
“You need to make sure you are in good form on the day: eat well, sleep well and play.
“I don’t think about it one second, I just have it in my head that we will go over there and have a good game.
“In terms of probability we are more likely to win if we play well because of the quality we have in the team. All these other scenarios are irrelevant to me at this point.” As quoted by Goal.

Kompany’s future still unresolved
Vincent Kompany has been an integral member of Man City’s squad for some time now, playing a key part in their previous three title victories.
The Belgian has only featured 16 times in the Premier League this campaign, partly due to injury, but he has still been a key player.
Kompany of course scored the only goal of the game as City beat Leicester 1-0 in their last tie.
However, the Brighton game could well be Kompany’s last in the Premier League for the Citizens.
The centre-back’s contract expires at the end of the season, and a new deal has yet to be agreed.
Pep Guardiola has stated that the club will discuss Kompany’s future properly when the season is over.
