Man City captain Kompany: Sterling now among best in the world

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany hailed the hat-trick performance of Raheem Sterling after their win over Watford.

Sterling hit a 13-minute hat-trick on Saturday as Manchester City took another step towards defending their Premier League title with a 3-1 defeat of Watford at the Etihad Stadium.

Kompany said: "It's incredible because his first year at City was tough, and then from the moment Pep [Guardiola] came in he just kicked on and went from strength to strength.

"For me, he is one of the best wingers in the world. He's so important for us. To have the ability to unlock defences when they defend with so many bodies is the sign of a top, top, top player."
