Kom on, City!
Vincent Kompany turned the title heat up to boiling point last night.
Manchester City’s skipper put his side back on top of the Prem with his header in first-half injury-time.
It was a sensational moment in the mother of all derbies to match the later verbal bust-up between United boss Alex Ferguson and his opposite number Roberto Mancini.
Now Kompany wants City to seal a first top-flight crown in 44 years.
He said: “I am buzzing. We have been waiting for this moment. We know it’s far from over but we’ve given our fans two wins over United.
“We have to finish it off. I hope we can do it in the two games we have left. Everybody wants it so bad.
“Somebody texted me to say I was going to score. I thought he was a lunatic!”
United were eight points clear 19 days ago. Now the sides are level on points but City have a superior goal difference, which Fergie admits gives the ‘noisy neighbours’ the upper hand.
He declared: “They are in the driving seat.
“It’s not over yet. But they have an eight-goal advantage. That is a big advantage at this time of the season.”
City chief Mancini, whose side go to Newcastle on Sunday, said: “We deserved to win. We scored and played well. They did not have a scoring chance.”
As for the touchline spat, Mancini added: “I was talking with the fourth official about a foul and Ferguson said some words to me. I answered him and it was finished.”
Ferguson claimed: “He was badgering the ref all the time. The minute I got out there, he was up again.”
Mancini fired back: “Him no? He doesn’t do this. He doesn’t talk to the referee to try to get decisions — never.”
Danny Welbeck left the ground on crutches and the striker is a doubt for United’s final two games. - www.thesun.co.uk
