Kompany: Man City still motivated in title race

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany insists he is still motivated to go after the Premier League title.

The Citizens remain third on the table following Monday night's 3-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion at the Etihad Stadium which has them six points behind league leaders Liverpool with a game in hand.

Despite the odds not being in City's favour with four fixtures remaining, Kompany is not giving up hope, especially after the Eastlands club pulled off a miraculous premiership victory on the final day of the 2011/12 season when beating QPR with late goals.

"I'm as motivated as anyone. We can still remember what happened for us two years ago, so it's kind of something where we take motivation out of it," he told Sky Sports.

"To be honest the most important thing is for us to get back to our beginning-of-season form.

"It looked today like we were better and if we can take that into our next four games, anything can happen."

The victory over the Baggies came courtesy of early goals from Pablo Zabaleta and Sergio Aguero before Graham Dorrans pulled one back for the visitors in the 16th minute.

However, Martin Demichelis scored from close range ten minutes before the half-time break to essentially wrap up the points which was well-received by Kompany following the disappointing 2-2 draw with Sunderland on Wednesday.

"Job done and we had some very good starts in the game, so we'll take the positives out of it and take it with us into the next four games," Kompany said.

City will now prepare themselves for the coming weekend's trip to Selhurst Park to take on the in-form Crystal Palace who are on a five-game winning streak.
