Kompany wants Manchester City to ‘ignore the context’ of decisive Premier League day
Vincent Kompany has urged Manchester City to ignore the bigger picture when they face Brighton and Hove Albion in Sunday’s Premier League title decider.
City head to Brighton knowing that a victory would see them retain the league title, seeing off Liverpool’s challenge.
Anything less than a win, though, would open the door for the Reds, who face Wolves at Anfield and are only one point behind the champions.
Three-time Premier League winner Kompany, though, insists Pep Guardiola’s side must put those permutations out of their minds when they take to the field.
“You try to avoid putting too much context to the game,” Kompany, who scored a sensational winner against Leicester City on Monday, told Sky Sports.
“Context being all the possible scenarios that can happen and the fact that it’s the most important game of the season and you can win the Premier League, which is not nothing.
“It feels like every that came before. You have to think about the simple things, such as Brighton having a bunch of strengths and weaknesses and have to find a way to deal with the strengths and exploit the weaknesses.
