Kompany full of praise for Man City defender Toure

Vincent Kompany is delighted with Manchester City's defensive partnership.

Kompany is pleased with his own form but he is even happier to hand out the bulk of the plaudits elsewhere.

"Kolo (Toure) and I work hard for each other and now that we have had time as a partnership you can see the difference," he told City's website.

"But as a defender you are always exposed to how much the rest of the team is willing to help you out. I think that the clean sheets we have been having are also a result of the great work that is being done in midfield and by the strikers.

"It is just that when everyone in the team is on the same page it allows individuals more opportunity to play to their own level."
