I’m just happy it didn’t go over the line! Those sort of things can change a game.”Skipper Vincent Kompany also stated: “I’m not worried about the result I’m buzzing with the tremendous performance. We went toe to toe with a very aggressive team and we matched them. It’s still in Liverpool’s hands. It came from our guts, a desire you can’t describe. We are a better team when we play with emotions.” last_img
