Manchester City 2 Chelsea 0: City captain Vincent Kompany savours the taste of revenge after FA Cup victory
City recovered from their defeat to the same opposition 12 days ago to defeat the Blues thanks to strikes from Stevan Jovetic and Samir Nasri
Saturday 15 February 2014
Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany savoured “revenge” for his side's Premier League defeat by Chelsea last week after turning the tables in the FA Cup.
Goals from Stevan Jovetic and Samir Nasri earned City a 2-0 win and a place in the quarter-finals, just 12 days after a 1-0 loss in the league.
City were completely outplayed on that occasion and Kompany told ITV1: "We wanted revenge today.
"Twelve days ago we had a really bad game, we gave them a lot of chances but we created a lot as well. Today we just adapted, they played the same and it was comfortable for us.
"From the word go were hard in the challenge, we were spot-on creating a lot of chances and we didn't give any away.
"It's a big win against a strong team. We love the FA Cup, I think this was a great game for the competition and we're really happy with the result."
