Guardiola wants Kompany at City despite injury-plagued season

Vincent Kompany Manchester City

Vincent Kompany Manchester City

If Manchester City's players can step up to the plate and play to their potential, we could see heavy scoring and potentially something that gets out of hand.

Take an exclusive behind-the-scenes look from inside the tunnel at the Etihad as Manchester City saw off Hull, 3-1.

Goals from Vincent Kompany, Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero set City up perfectly for a crunch week in which they face an FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal followed by the midweek Manchester derby with rivals United.

Aguero has scored 164 goals for Man City since his switch from Atletico Madrid in 2011. "So the problem with the goal against Hull was six players didn't want to defend".

However, the 20-year-old broke a bone in his foot back in February and the opportunity to lead the line fell to Aguero once more.

With six games remaining City have 64 points, one more than fourth-placed Liverpool, who visit West Bromwich Albion on Sunday. "Not just in the defensive part where he has helped us a lot and has done all he can do but also in our process to create the chances, so no complaints about what he has done since the injury to Gabriel".

The other absentees are new signings Ilkay Gundogan and Gabriel Jesus.

The SDF said its leadership was working with the coalition to investigate the incident and prevent it from happening again. This is the third time in a month that civilians or allies may have been wounded or killed by American-led airstrikes.

"For me it's always a long journey back", Kompany told BT Sport.

Like in weeks past, us at ManCitySquare made a decision to continue our Combined Best XI idea for this week's match.

Claude Puel's men have little to play for from now until the end of the season, but will be wanting to continue their strong run of form. The full backs are guys who go up and down, they are a really, really good team. It was the first time the City keeper had saved an effort on target since January 2. "Hopefully we got that experience there and it'll help us next season".

"We didn't show the Southampton quality on the pitch, we were nervous".

City started brightly and Aguero appeared in the goalscoring mood as he had a series of sighters in the opening minutes.

"I would have liked to be injured less in my career but every single time I've put in the hard work".

Manchester City should come out the winners of this match.
