Kompany insists there were positives to be drawn.
"It wasn't a bad performance," reasoned the Belgian international on City's website.
"For us it would have been perfect to score early and that is what we set out to do but it didn't happen and you have to give credit and say it was a solid defensive performance from them. Their defence at times was top class.
"We have now had three clean sheets in a row and that is a positive. We kept calm and we will continue to do so."
