Manchester City’s glad to see new names on team score sheet: EPL news
Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has revealed that he is delighted to see fellow team-mates and Pablo Zabaleta get back amongst the goals. Both players scored in the 2-1 victory over Premier League strugglers West Ham United at the City
of Manchester Stadium on Sunday.
De Jong’s 10th minute strike to open the scoring in that match was the midfielder’s first goal in Manchester City colours. That goal was followed by’s fantastic solo effort, which doubled City’s lead on the quarter-hour mark. West
Ham United’s then pulled one back for the visitors in the 33rd minute, but it was not enough for the Hammers to avoid yet another defeat.
The match at the City of Manchester Stadium finished 2-1, and the Sky Blues now look all but certain to clinch that final remaining UEFA Champions League spot.
Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany believes that the result was important for the entire team, but claims that it holds special significance for two players in particular. Nigel de Jong and Pablo Zabaleta are two names not normally found on the scoresheet,
but their goals against West Ham will undoubtedly give them a huge boost in confidence.
Speaking after the match, Kompany said, “I was happy to see Nigel (de Jong) score because he really has been looking for that goal for such a long time. I hope that will trigger his account now and who knows, maybe we will see five or 10 goals a season from
The Belgian added, "We joke about things like this but it's also a challenge. We joke about Zaba as well, and obviously he has also done it now. I had better start working on it now - I can score as well, so it can't be that long any more before I get one."
Manchester City now have a foot and a half  in next season’s Champions League, as they are seven points clear of closest rivals and Tottenham Hotspur.
