MAN CITY ‘PUMPED UP’ FOR FA CUP FINAL

Pep Guardiola’s men will make English football history on Saturday if they triumph at Wembley to seal the nation’s first-ever domestic treble

Vincent Kompany believes Manchester City have the hunger of a pack of lions as they approach a shot at history in the FA Cup final against Watford.

Pep Guardiola’s men beat Brighton and Hove Albion 4-1 last weekend to prevail in a relentless title race against Liverpool, adding back-to-back Premier League triumphs to consecutive EFL Cups.

If City overcome a Hornets side they have already beaten twice this season they will become the first team to complete a clean sweep of England’s domestic trophies in the same season.

And, with the treble on the line, Kompany is not about to let his team-mates take their collective eye off the ball.

“It’s not about adding that achievement [the treble] to my CV, I don’t care about my CV,” he told reporters

“I know this team and they are like lions. When this team is hungry, they are such a special team. I’m going to do everything I can to put a bit of blood in that water, so this team gets even hungrier.

“My style is pretty simple. Every now and then, when things are getting too comfortable, I go a little aggressive in training or I speak up and say what I think.

“But the main thing is that these guys, together with the manager, are always able to understand what the priority is.

“We focus on winning games. Winning one [Premier League] title was not enough, it had been done before. Back to back – that is special.”
