He said: "We were patient. When you say that, sometimes people think slow, but that wasn’t it, we kept a nice tempo.

"There was consistency, we took our time to build our attacks and eventually we just needed that one chance for the game open up for us.

"When that happened we still had the right habits to have runs in behind and break the lines, so it was a good football match for us.

"My defenders are pleased with the clean sheet. Millwall doesn’t give it you easily, because it is getting thrown on you and they have really strong players who are competing for second balls.

"Unless you deal with that side of the game you don’t get the clean sheet. The players battled for it, it was a team effort.

“We need a team filled with players who understand exactly how we play and what we do, so we need lads ready.”

Kompany also provided an update on Nathan Tella and Arijanet Muric, who both left the pitch with injuries during the game.

“There’s no real concerns for Nathan,” he added.

"Sprint 99 was a bit too much for him.

"With Arijanet, we will have to see. We did do a scan, it didn’t look like there was any structural damage, but in the end it was too sore for him to continue, and he is a brave guy.”
