Vincent Kompany does not believe that Manchester City will be out of the running for a Premier League title no matter what happens in Thursday’s clash with Liverpool.
Liverpool enter the game holding a seven-point lead in the standings as City struggled through the month of December, losing three times and allowing Jurgen Klopp’s unbeaten side to open up a gap at the top.
City famously ran down Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United for the league title in 2012, and while a loss would see Guardiola’s side fall 10 points back, the Belgian says all hope will not be lost.
“We overcame eight points in six games in the past,” he told reporters. “I don’t live with that scenario in my head, of what happens if we lose.
“The moment I have to face the situation, at that moment I’ll see what the options are.
“I promise you now – when you are 10 points behind, all of a sudden, if there are not many teams between you and first, it only takes one team to start having a bad month and you will be back in.”
