Five Thoughts: Liverpool 3-2 Manchester City

Kompany's Worst, Our Worst Plays Well, Worthy Champions Both and Poll! THOUGHT THE FIRST: Bad Kompany I want to think a healthy Vincent Kompany would not have been made to look like a drunken matador by Raheem Sterling during goal #1. I want to believe it was the injury which led to him getting beat badly in the air for goal #2. I want to believe that in the pink of health, Vincent Kompany-as admirable a man as has ever worn the shirt-would absolutely been able to clear a moderately deflected ball so far out of danger, you could time the balls flight with a sundial, instead of painfully...

Vincent Kompany In Injury Scare

Concerning news ahead of tomorrows lunchtime showdown against Liverpool in that captain Vincent Kompany is reported to have limped out of training with a knee injury. The below stills do not make for comfortable viewing although it must be stressed that no official word has been forthcoming as to the extent of the injury or his status for the game. As an aside, as pointed out to me on twitter earlier, if we can read anything into the bibs v non-bibs set-up it suggests that despite being fit Sergio Aguero will not start tomorrow. UPDATE: Daniel Taylor of The Guardian has tweeted that City...

As the two clubs prepare for what looks to be the Premier League's game of the season, Vincent Kompany expects City to be challenged by Liverpool's attacking threat. Two clubs enter, one club leaves. The outcome will determine the well being of tens or even hundreds of thousands in the coming weeks. Or at least give one side control of its own destiny in the Premier League title chase. And Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany is expecting Liverpool to give them their toughest test of the season. "There's so much at stake in this game, but we remember the game at The Etihad," said...

Game Thread: City v United

Team sheets are in, and getting warmed up! City XI: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Demichelis, Clichy, Yaya, Fernandinho, Nasri, Silva, Navas, Dzeko Subs: Pantilimon, Kolarov, Lescott, Milner, Garcia, Negredo, Jovetic Reaction: About what most expected, with Demichelis instead of Lescott. I'm a little disappointed to see Navas instead of Milner, since I think Milner is better defensively, and Navas hasn't been playing great away from home. He did own Evra last time through. United XI: De Gea, Rafael, Ferdinand, Jones, Evra, Carrick, Cleverley, Fellaini, Mata, Welbeck, Rooney Subs: Lindegarrd,...
