Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany believes Premier League title rivals Liverpool will win all of their remaining games in the Premier League. With eight matches remaining Pep Guardiola’s men have a one-point lead at the top of the table with eight matches remaining in the Premier League this season.
City won 3-1 against Watford on Saturday, while Liverpool responded with a 4-2 thrashing of Burnley at Anfield. Defending Champions captain Kompany, whose team are aiming to win back-to-back titles, said he felt the Reds would be winning rest of the league games this season.
“We couldn’t have asked for more at this stage of the season but we are all convinced that Liverpool will win every single remaining game until the end of the season,” he told reporters.
“We know how big the task ahead of us is with big games still coming up and difficult games against any team. We’re all relaxed and calm, we’re not getting carried away.”
Raheem Sterling scored a hatrick in the second-half at Etihad, as City registered their 3-1 victory over Watford on Saturday to move one-point clear at the top. Kompany believes the 24-year-old English International, who has scored 15 goals and registered nine assists in 27 league games this season, is one of the world’s best wingers.
“He has an amazing drive to develop. It’s incredible because his first year at City was tough and then from the moment Pep came in he just kicked on and went from strength to strength,”
“For me, he is one of the best wingers in the world. He’s so, so important for us. To have the ability to unlock defences when they defend with so many bodies is the sign of a top, top, top player.”
