Cape Town - Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has urged his teammates to maintain their good form, if they are to finish the 2015/16 campaign on a high note.

The Belgium international was speaking to the media after City edged Liverpool 3-1 on penalties to bag the 2016 Capital One Cup as their first trophy of the season.

Kompany has been buoyed by the Citizens' recent upturn in form, but was quick to caution against complacency in the wake of their cup success at the weekend.

"We don't take anything for granted," said Kompany. "We are stronger at the end of the season because we have the right mindset.

"I just think we need to keep showing people around that we can achieve a very good level of football.

"We showed it against Liverpool, we showed it in Kiev. It needs to carry on. We can't make any mistakes anymore in the Premier League. That is what makes it an exciting competition, especially the fashion that we won it in against the club we won it against," he added.

The two sides lock horns again in a crunch Premier League encounter on Wednesday, with Manuel Pellegrini's men facing a battle to hold on to their place in the league's top four.

Kompany recalls how City were seen as underdogs going into the Capital One final after losing to the Anfield side earlier in the campaign, but believes the club has gained form and showed signs of improvement since then.

"It is a massive win. Many thought we weren't favorites just because we got battered by them at the Etihad in the league, but the team has shown signs in Kiev, shown signs against Liverpool of how we need to approach the rest of the season.

"Wednesday is a weird game because we are playing against a team that is going to be just as tired as we are."
