Manchester City’s central defender Vincent Kompany doesn’t worry about the fact that he’s going to go against league top scorer Robin Van Persie, saying that he has been encountering very string opponents throughout the last few weeks and that he’ll manage to stop the Dutchman like he did with others.
“It is not like it has been any different in the previous weeks,” said the Belgium defender.
“I have gone from Mario Gomez to Wayne Rooney to Edinson Cavani to Didier Drogba and now Robin van Persie. The list of names doesn’t stop.
“It is a tough world for defenders sometimes but I enjoy it all the more when I play against strong opponents.”
“We have played Chelsea, Tottenham, United and Liverpool, all away from home,” he said. “It doesn’t come any harder than that in the Premier League.
“We still have Arsenal away but after that we will be the favourites in most of the games we are going to play.
“That is where we might have an advantage.”
Chelsea’s top defenders couldn’t stop RVP from scoring a hat-trick against them so why should Manchester City’s defenders be able to stop him from scoring at all? Kompany doesn’t really see the extent of Robin’s form and might have a shock today in the match.
