Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany believes Premier League title rival Liverpool will win all of its remaining games.

Pep Guardiola's men hold a one-point lead at the top with eight matches left in the Premier League this season.

City has won 24 of its 30 league games this campaign, while Liverpool has 22 victories after beating Burnley 4-2 on Sunday.

Kompany, whose team is aiming for back-to-back titles, said he felt the Reds would be flawless for the rest of the league season.

"We couldn't have asked for more at this stage of the season but we are all convinced that Liverpool will win every single remaining game until the end of the season," he told reporters.

 

"We know how big the task ahead of us is with big games still coming up and difficult games against any team. We're all relaxed and calm, we're not getting carried away."

Amazing drive

Raheem Sterling led City to its latest win, scoring a hat-trick in a 3-1 victory over Watford on Saturday.

Kompany believes the 24-year-old, who has 15 goals and nine assists in 27 league games this season, is one of the world's best attackers.

"He has an amazing drive to develop. It's incredible because his first year at City was tough and then from the moment Pep came in he just kicked on and went from strength to strength," he said.

"For me, he is one of the best wingers in the world. He's so, so important for us. To have the ability to unlock defences when they defend with so many bodies is the sign of a top, top, top player."
