City came into their Premier League clash with Leicester on Monday night knowing they needed a win.
Pep Guardiola’s men trailed Liverpool by two points before kick off after the Reds beat Newcastle on Saturday night.
Liverpool fans would have enjoyed the first hour of City’s clash with Leicester as Guardiola’s side struggled to dominate.
Step up City hero Kompany, who fired home a rocket from 30 yards to send the Eithad wild.
And Liverpool fans were fuming after City took the lead, with some supporters claiming they’re just not meant to win their first Premier League title this season.
One Reds fan wrote on Twitter: “You are kidding me. When has kompany ever done that.”
Another added: “kompany????? a rocket????? confirms it. liverpool aren’t meant to win the league.”
“As a Liverpool fan, I’m disappointed, but that Kompany goal was ridiculous…” said another.
“Yea just Liverpool’s luck kompany with a worldie,” a fellow Liverpool fan simply put.
Another wrote on Twitter: “Gutted as a Liverpool fan but that’s an absolute rocket from Kompany…”
City are on course to win consecutive Premier League titles after dominating under Guardiola in recent years.
And the former Barcelona boss has admitted England’s top flight is the toughest league in the world.
“For the quality from rivals, no doubts it’s the toughest,” he said. “That’s why being there [top] is incredible.
“Only one will take the prize and the other one will be at home sad.
“Arriving at this stage, two games left with 92 points, after 100 points last season, that is the most satisfaction I’ve had as a manager. It’s not easy, honestly, and the players did it again.
“I would not say that 100 points was bad and that we are not satisfied with what we did last season but, at the same time, we were seven points behind (earlier this season).
“You give credit for the titles and how huge our rival is. In my career as a manager, I played against incredible sides and there are two that were ‘wow’.
“One is the Barcelona of Luis Enrique with Neymar, (Lionel) Messi and (Luis) Suarez in front. The other is this Liverpool. I think they’re the best two sides I’ve faced as a manager.”
