Kompany urges City focus

Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany has urged his team-mates to remain focused despite moving to the brink of the title with Wednesday's 4-0 win over Aston Villa.

City's superior goal difference over Liverpool means they can claim their second Premier League crown with a draw at home to West Ham on the final day of the season.

But Kompany is keen to ensure Manuel Pellegrini's side do not get ahead of themselves and get the job done on Sunday.

"We need to stay focused," he said. "It feels like we just have to do everything right again and then hopefully we'll be able to enjoy a good day on Sunday. But the job is still there to be done.

"When you start a game as a huge favourite and you know the other team is going to come and defend for their lives, it's easy to become impatient. I think we dealt terrifically with the pressure, with the situation and we can take that into the next game.

"I expect a similar kind of game against West Ham. Anything is possible, the main thing you have to carry with you in football is belief that anything can happen. We did that and now we've put ourselves in a position again where it's in our own hands.

"I'm sure Liverpool players and fans will hope, so therefore we just need to be careful and do our job."
