Kompany believes City can still lift the Premier League even if they suffer defeat at Anfield.

Yet Citizens captain Vincent Kompany says that even if his side suffer defeat on Merseyside, their chances of finishing top will not be over.

“I think in our case we [would still] have some chance,” the Belguim international told FourFourTwo.

“Obviously the winners are favourites, we can be sure of that – but if we lose, I think we have more chance of getting back in it than they would [if they lost].”

It is set to be one of the closest title races in a number of years, with Chelsea also challenging and they could be the team that benefits the most if the clash between the other two was a draw.

Due to cup runs that saw City win the League Cup and reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, they are now playing catch up in the fixture list and follow the game at Anfield with another league clash against Sunderland on Wednesday.

It means that if they were to triumph over Brendan Rodgers’ side and then beat the Black Cats, they would then be top of the table with a game in hand and Manuel Pellegrini’s men would then be in a very strong position.
