Kompany inspired by star duo
Vincent Kompany hailed Argentinian duo Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero following Man City's 6-1 thumping of Norwich on Saturday.
Roberto Mancini's side closed the gap on leaders Manchester United to two points but are still reliant on their rivals slipping up with four games remaining.
And the Belgian skipper admitted his delight at the work ethic and spirit of his team-mates, following a string of abject performances.
"It was a great performance. I've seen so many guys fight and give everything on the pitch and that's all I needed so I'm happy with that," said Kompany.
"Enough has been said, all we had to do was go out and play. There has to be not too much talking, we just go out and play.
"We realised that for a couple of months we did not perform at our best, and today with Carlos and Kun up front it was not just about the goals, we were fired by their performance and work rate.
"In defence we were strong and in midfield we won our battles, so it was very positive. We just have to finish the season with no regrets and perform at a very high standard."
