Reports are out claiming that Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is happy to have silenced the doubters with a 100 per cent start to the season.
However the Belgium international refuses to see anything significant in his team’s strong start, or in the fact that City are now bookies’ favourites.
“Usually we get written off a bit later in the season, then we come back,” said Kompany with a smile.
“It is not a bad way to start, but for all of a sudden people to talk about us as favourites … why does it matter?
“I am happy for people to say Arsenal, Liverpool, United and Chelsea are the favourites. But if we keep playing like this, you won’t see any sad faces at this club.”
