Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has said that his sides derby day victory over Manchester United meant more to him and his teammates than it did to their counterparts in red, the BBC reports.

City crushed United 4-1 and heaped more misery onto new manager David Moyes thanks to a brace from Sergio Aguero and goals from Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri before Wayne Rooney hit a late consolation goal.

And Kompany has put the boot into the Old Trafford side by claiming that his side wanted it more and that they should taker it as an indicator of their ambitions for the forthcoming season.

“Maybe the game meant a little bit more to us than for them,” said Kompany.

“We were looking forward to this fixture. We need to win these kind of games. There was no reason why we should fear the opposition.”

However, Kompany was wary to not let the result get to his head by insisting that the game was too early to be labelled as a season defining game.

“It’s too early to say it’s a defining game,” added the Belgium international. “You make a statement over the course of the season.

“When we won 6-1 at Old Trafford I said we need to stay humble. It’s only three points, but it’s a good game to win and it gives the fans something to celebrate over the next few days.”
