Manchester City sit in fourth place in the Premier League table and still battle hard with Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool for a Top-4 finish that will send the Sky Blues to next season's Champions League.

Sunday's draw against Middlesbrough was a painful one, and the points dropped may have a big impact on the final four matches. The job is simple: win all four games and not rely on anyone else.

One good thing for City is that the next three matches (Crystal Palace, Leicester City and West Bromwich Albion) are at home against teams that won't offer that much resistance on paper.

And captain Vincent Kompany wants the Etihad Stadium to support the team and help them win those three matches.:

“[We have] three home games now and we’ll need our fans behind us to push us over the line and to make sure we can look forward to next season in a way that’s exciting."

The problem for City is that they've won just HALF of their home games this season, but the issues at the Etihad won't affect the team when it matters most, according to the skipper.

“There’s not one single doubt in our minds that we’ll get the job done. It’s not going to be a problem anymore. I fiercely believe that playing at home gives a big advantage to teams and we have to look at it in that way.

“But there’s nothing else in our minds than to finish strongly. We’ll do everything we can to win the next four games.

“Finish strongly now and [we] give ourselves something to look forward to next season because you want to be in four competitions. Sometimes exceptional seasons are built on something like this.”


With Kompany in the team, we certainly can be confident in winning games. Even at home.
