“We’ve got a few games now which are more important, which is every Championship fixture between that game and now, but it will be a special day. I think for the players, this is an experience and they’ve earned the right to look forward to such a game.”
Vincent added: “From my side, I’m really calm about it. I know that past the hugs and the high fives there is a machine there that wants to win everything. We’ll focus first on the Championship games and then give it the right place it deserves.”
Speaking on the win over Fleetwood, Vincent Kompany continued: “The way we scored is what they were better at doing than us for the entirety of the game. Landing on those loose balls, getting first to the ball, to have this very heroic performance, but in the end, we find a way.
“I didn’t feel we had to lose our nerve or do anything different other than put the ball in the net.”
