Kompany: Man City players know we have big targets on our backs

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany says they know they now have a big target on their backs.

Kompany says that has been the case since the Abu Dhabi takeover more than three years ago - and is convinced they can cope.

He said: "We're used to it. Before it was because of the money, now it's because we're top of the league.

"But we've got the right weapons to respond so I prefer it now to a couple of years ago.

"You always encounter teams that on a good day can cause you a lot of trouble."
