and live on Freeview channel 276
Despite suffering three league defeats out of three, the manager insists there is plenty to look forward to, with the team ready to build on their experiences so far.
“There’s no such thing as an easy game in this league, so you have to try and prepare in the best way you think you can get a result,” he said.
“Our team shows signs of having something really interesting, something to look forward to and we continue to build on that, whether it’s Tottenham or any other opposition.
“We focus on our own improvements, but we still think we can get a result of course.”
The international break represents a chance to take stock, reflect, and prepare for another stern run of matches.
Despite the calibre of opposition on the horizon, Kompany isn’t fazed one bit.
“I think I’d prefer it that way, “he said. “Those games can all come 10 games into the season, or 15 games into the season, and you can be as good as you want to be but it doesn’t mean you’re going to get results.
“The key is on getting better as quickly as we can and facing the top sides early? I don’t have a problem with that.
“As long as emotionally we don’t let ourselves get into a hype if we do succeed or too much into drama if we don’t get results.
“This team has enough to have something to look forward to. It’s a really enjoyable team to coach, there’s not one moment I haven’t enjoyed being with these guys and that’s a good base.”
