Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany believes Frank Lampard’s goal against Chelsea will kick start their season.

Scoring the leveller against his former club on Sunday, Lampard was praised by both fans of City and his former club.

And, his captain Kompany believes that his goal will kick-start their season after a stuttering start.

“Ever since I’ve been at this club, seasons and big moments have been decided on small events like this, so I will never underestimate what it could mean to our season,” he said.

“Frank has brought experience – experience is not just a word you make up, it’s really something that helps, like the goal he scored.

“It means keeping your head cool when you’re under pressure and we’re down to 10 men. How many players would’ve scored that goal? That’s what he’s proven in only a few minutes.”

Lampard is on loan from new club New York City and the Belgian defender believes a short term loan is best for both clubs.

“He needed what we can offer him and we need what he can bring to us as well, so both ways,” the Belgium defender said.

“If you talk to him I reckon that’s how he sees it as well.”
