Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is happy to go toe-to-toe with Manchester United for the title.

Kompany reckons City - who have the edge on goal difference after 18 games - are pleased it could come down to a straight shootout between the Manchester clubs.

The Belgian, 25, said: "I wouldn't want anyone else to be battling for the title with us than United.

"It's a good way to fight for the title for us.

"Hopefully it will make it even more special to bring that trophy home."
