Skipper Kompany said: "I think you need a lot of mental strength to be in a position like ours.
"It gives you a good feeling to be at the top - and at the right time, too.
"But their men gave everything. It was very hard the whole game, especially after the second goal, when it became exciting again.
"So, it was a deserved victory. But it makes the next two games obviously still very, very interesting."
