The fixtures in the coming weeks could be pivotal in City’s campaign, starting with the midweek trip to Tottenham in the Barclays Premier League. City then host title rivals Chelsea next Monday before facing them again in the FA Cup fifth round later in February, a month in which they also take on Barcelona at home in the Champions League. The Capital One Cup final follows on March 2. Press Association City are in outstanding form having gone 19 games unbeaten, 17 of which they have won, and their attack has been formidable, with 110 goals scored this season. Kompany, speaking to ESPNTV, said: “Our weakness is our strength, like any other squad that are so dominant and so attacking. “We play with two strikers and two wingers who are virtually strikers and one of our midfield players – which we only have two of – is also virtually a striker. “Our full-backs are pushing up all the time, ultimately out of a team of 11 players we have six or seven who are always involved in the attack and it just means that there is a lot of ground to cover when you lose the ball. “It’s a risk but it’s a style of playing that suits us at the moment. “Complacency is our biggest enemy, it’s very simple. “We have six or seven players thinking offensive, and that just means we have to be super aggressive to recover the ball quickly. “When we don’t have the ball, ultimately we’re not as good anymore, so I think a good strength is to know how you function. This is how we function, so there’s no excuses for us not to look to get the ball back very quickly.” Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has warned against complacency as his quadruple-chasing side head into a critical phase of their season.
