Vincent Kompany has urged Manchester City not to take their eye off the ball despite taking a firm step towards winning the Premier League title by beating Everton 3-2 at Goodison Park this evening.

The Citizens grabbed three points against the Toffees with goals from Sergio Aguero (22nd minute) and Edin Dzeko (43rd and 48th minutes), moving on to 80 points, level with Liverpool, but top of the table on goal difference.

Now, with Manchester City having two home games remaining, against Aston Villa and West Ham respectively, they are close to clinching the title.

But Kompany feels they must not forget their recent home clash against Sunderland, where a late goal was needed just to rescue a 2-2 draw.


"Ultimately it's two games at home. It doesn't mean anything. You've seen the Sunderland game, it wasn't easy at all", the defender told Sky Sports.

"But hopefully if we just play like we can then it will make the difference", Kompany added.

Both Aston Villa and West Ham, Manchester City's final two opponents, are safe from relegation from the Premier League.
