Man City got back to winning ways with a thumping 5-0 win over Newcastle United on Saturday and as such the 28 year old is no doubt in buoyant mood and isn’t fearful of facing an attack likely to comprise Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar.

“We don’t fear them. You don’t go in at this level fearing strikers. We want to play against them. It will be the third time in 12 months we’ve faced them now.

“There’s nothing new to worry us, it’s a case of having the whole team at a very high level.

“They’re a special team with special players, of course. But I think their ability is not about hurting you all game – you can have tougher games when you go to Stoke City.”

Kompany went on to expand on these claims

“They have more players than anyone else in the world who can finish games with a touch of magic.

“But I’ve come into football to play these games. From the moment I’m feeling reluctant to play in these games I’m not in the right place. This is what I want.”
