Man City captain Kompany: I won't stop tackling

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany says he won't change his game after being sent off during victory over Arsenal.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany says he won't change his game after being sent off during victory over Arsenal.

The Belgian was sent off by Mike Dean for a challenge on Jack Wilshere, with the official interpreting Kompany's 75th-minute tackle as a two-footed one.

Kompany disagreed, posting a picture on his Twitter account which appeared to show his left foot being in contact with the pitch as he went to make the tackle.

"About the tackle: If the ball is overrun by the opponent and a 50/50 challenge occurs, collision is inevitable," he said, tagging on his picture.

"Ultimately I'm a defender: Appeal may work or not. I will never pull out of a challenge, as much as I will never intend to injure a player."
