Vincent Kompany: Five points behind in January or February? Big deal


Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany says he is not fazed by Chelsea's five-point gap at the top of the Premier League table.

The Citizens trail leaders Chelsea by five points ahead of this weekend's home game against Hull City but the Belgium international says there is enough time for Pellegrini's men to recover.

"This is just such a usual situation for us," Kompany told Sky Sports News HQ.

"Five points behind in January or February? Big deal.

"We feel very comfortable, we've been in this position many times before. We don't get over-excited, we don't get over-confident or too desperate, either. I can't remember ever leading.

"I'd love to be 20 points clear, but it is what it is.

"Fair play to Chelsea if they win every game until the end of the season - by all means, win the league.

"But there will be some tricky games coming up, and we're better in those moments.

"I think Chelsea now look solid, like they know what they're doing. They have experience and a lot of great players, but we have it too."
