London: Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is convinced Manchester City will find their stride in the Champions League this season despite surrendering a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 in a Group E Champions League tie against CSKA Moscow on a freezing night in the Russia.

Sergio Aguero (29th min) and James Milner (37th min) made it 2-0 for City before Seydou Doumbia pulled one back for the Russians, and a controversial late penalty saw Bebras Natcho make it 2-2.
City are facing a familiar battle to qualify for the knockout stages echoing their travails in 2011-12 and 2012-13, when they failed to advance from their groups.
But Kompany said: "There's no mental block, there's just occasionally a number of performances that need to be better. I'm 100 per cent convinced we'll overturn it."
