Vincent Kompany was happy to come through Manchester City’s goalless draw with Chelsea on Sunday unscathed.

The Belgium international was initially a doubt with a knee injury picked up in the Premier League champions’ draw with Real Madrid and was struggling to recover before the clash at Stamford Bridge.

But after being passed fit to play, Kompany produced a superb performance, and was delighted to keep a clean sheet against the Blues’ fearsome front line.

“I was on crutches just 48 hours ago,” he told City’s official website.

“I wanted to play for the team. I had said that I wouldn’t play if I couldn’t give everything I had on the pitch. But I am happy I was able to take part, because it was not the most comfortable game.

“It’s always a difficult away game. I don’t think there are many times we come here and win.

“In the end it was a draw and as a defender I am happy with a clean sheet – I guess that’s what I’m going to take out of the game.”
