City performance in crucial win beyond anything Ive ever witnessed - Kompany

London, Jan 4: Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany saluted his team-mates for a "tremendous" performance as Pep Guardiola's side emerged victorious from Thursday's top-of-the-table clash with Liverpool.

Guardiola hails 'incredible' Bernardo Silva performance

Leroy Sane got the winner 18 minutes from time after Roberto Firmino had cancelled out Sergio Aguero's empathic opener.

It was Liverpool's first Premier League defeat in their 21st game of the season and prevented champions City falling 10 points behind the leaders.


And Kompany was astonished by City's gutsy display, as they breathed life back into the title race.

"I'm not even worried about the result," Kompany told Sky Sports. "I'm absolutely buzzing with the tremendous performance.

"We went toe-to-toe with a very aggressive team and we matched them, maybe more than matched them.

"It's still in Liverpool's hands, but the performance was beyond anything I've ever witnessed.

"It came from our guts, a desire you can't describe. We are a better team when we play with emotions."
