Vincent Kompany feels that Sunday’s top of the table Premier League clash with Liverpool is set to be decided by the finest of margins.
Kompany has revealed that he thought last season’s games between Man City and The Reds were decided by the small details, on the day.
“I think if you take all four games of last season, including the home [league] game, it’s a game of small margins,’’ Kompany told FourFourTwo.
“You look at each and every game and there’s not a lot of difference in terms of how the games happened.
“One game we were more efficient and scored five; the other game they scored three in, what, 15 minutes [sic – 19]. And that’s how these games seem to go.
“The margin is so small between both teams and a lot of things happen in a very short period of time. You have to make sure you can control this and be at our best.
“[In] these kinds of games, you need a lot of things to come together – you need a little bit of luck, a good performance, you need to be clinical and defend well and that goes for both teams.
“It’s too close I think to actually make any big statements – that’s what makes this game so interesting.”
Sunday’s winners will be three points clear at the top of the Premier League table as they enter the international break.
