Skipper Vincent Kompany insists Manchester City have the mental toughness to stand the heat in the Premier League title race.
The pressure has been turned up on league leaders City, with their 1-0 defeat at Everton on Tuesday night coupled with Manchester United's 2-0 victory over Stoke meaning that City now top the table by goal difference alone.
"If there is one thing I know about our team it is that we are mentally strong," Kompany said. "If people want to underestimate us, then please do so."
