Kompany brings City closer to title

Manchester City returned to the top of the Premier League table after a brilliant strike from captain Vincent Kompany secured a vital 1-0 win over Leicester City.

With the defending champions struggling to find a way past Leicester’s stubborn defense, Kompany stepped up to send the Etihad Stadium into a frenzy with a stunning shot from distance, 20 minutes before the end of regular time.

“I hadn’t scored this season but I always feel in big moments that I’m going to do something, I don’t know if it’s a header or what,” Kompany told Sky Sports after the game.

“Today was a little bit of frustration, everyone was saying ‘don’t shoot, don’t shoot’ and I could really hear it. I thought hold on a second, I’ve not come this far in my career for young players to tell me if I can take a shot, and I just had a go!”.

The goal was particularly crucial as it left City just one win away from securing the Premier League title this season.
