Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is delighted to be top of the table in the New Year.

Kompany, 25, hailed City's 3-0 victory over Liverpool on Tuesday as key to their hopes in the race for the title.

He said: "This is massive for us.

"We were incredibly efficient and it's a great win.

"It is one of the top six teams out of the way.

"And now we know United and the other teams have to play each other."
