Vincent Kompany believes Man City have got their mojo back after Aston Villa win

Vincent Kompany believes Manchester City are back in the groove after revitalising their title challenge with a comprehensive defeat of Aston Villa.

City thrashed the Premier's League's bottom side 4-0 on Saturday to move within two points of third-placed Arsenal with a game in hand.

However, they are 10 points behind leaders Leicester.

It was a much-needed victory after a poor performance at Liverpool on Wednesday saw City slump to a third successive league defeat.

Kompany felt those statistics were not a measure of form as City won the Capital One Cup and claimed a Champions League win at Dynamo Kiev in that time.

He said: "It's been an awkward week but if you look at the last four games we've won three over different competitions.

"For the whole team it's now important to get to the level we showed here. That's what we've got to maintain from now until the end of the season."

City were far too strong for Villa. The floodgates opened after Yaya Toure scored in the 48th minute. Three more followed in the next 18 minute as Sergio Aguero struck twice and substitute Raheem Sterling tapped in.

Kompany added: "It took us a while to break them down but once we did we had the goal difference in mind. We couldn't have hoped for a better day."
