Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany has issued a rallying call to his team mates, stating that they cannot afford to be relaxed in spite of holding on to the top spot in the English Premier League table after their thrashing of Blackburn Rovers at home in the Etihad Stadium last weekend.

However, Kompany has also issued a warning to all the chasing clubs that the pressure is on them to catch up with The Citizens, who, in his eyes, are the favorites to win the English Premier League title.

It was only a few days back that Kompany promised to the fans that he wanted to bring five back to back English Premier League titles to the Etihad Stadium to quench the hunger of the fans that have been starved of success for so long. Kompany also admitted that among the chasing pack, only Manchester United can potentially stop them from winning their first English Premier League title due to their vast experience in winning titles but the defender is ready to lock them out when the two sides meet in what will be the title decider next month.

Vincent Kompany is also pleased with the form of the Manchester City side that had been struggling recently but has returned to top form with huge victories in both the English Premier League and the UEFA Europa League.

Speaking to the Euro 2012 Bet online website ahead of their match in the English Premier League this weekend, Kompany added that the return of Yaya Toure has sparked a change of gear for the side.

Speaking on the return of Carlos Tevez, Vincent Kompany is of the opinion that he has won the English Premier League twice with Manchester United and his experience will help the side cope with the pressures of the title race a lot.
