Kompany: Liverpool Will Struggle

Manchester City captain, Vincent Kompany, expects that Liverpool will find it harder to sustain their title challenge now that they will participate in the UEFA Champions League.

Kompany has claimed that European football increases the physical demands on teams and can start to take a toll on players as the season advances.

"When the Champions League comes in, the Premier League will be a different competition all over for Liverpool," Kompany told Sky Sports.

"It's tricky for all the clubs that are involved in the Champions League because it will get more demanding as the weeks go on."

Kompany’s team will take on the Merseyside club in City’s first home fixture of the campaign and Kompany has spoken about the prospect of taking on last season’s runners-up.

"It's the first time for me that this home fixture comes so early in the season," he added.

"But if we can perform like we did at Newcastle, we will be hoping to get the three points at home. Newcastle was important for us because it takes a lot of pressure away from the Liverpool game."

Manchester City will face Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium on Monday at 21:00
