City may be third in the table when the Premier League resumes this weekend, but Blues captain Vincent Kompany says he is happy with his side’s start to the season.
“We are exactly where we wanted to be, second or third place and there are still a lot of games to play. We are just getting through them," said the Belgium international.
“There will be moments where we will really switch it on.
“It's already positive for us to pick up so many points when people say maybe we didn't play our best games, but I think we have to be happy with the results.
If we can still step it up, it's going to be a great season for us again.
It’s thought that Mancini has been a long admirer of the midfield star who’s days could be numbered at Roma if he is not recalled to the side on Sunday.
“Roma’s team selection for Sunday evening’s trip to Genoa will not just be of interest to the club’s supporters and those who follow Serie A football,” writes Goal.com’s Chief Correspondent Wayne Veysey.
“It will also be closely monitored in Manchester as the possibility emerges that the previously unattainable could finally be within reach.
Daniele De Rossi, Rome icon and Italy midfield kingpin, faces a potentially make-or-break moment in his 11 years in the first team as he waits to hear if he has made the final cut for the starting XI against Genoa.
“The weekend before the international break, he suffered the rare experience of being dropped for Roma’s match against Atalanta at the Stadio Olimpico.
“Admiration for De Rossi stretches far and wide, not least to Manchester, where Roberto Mancini has made no secret of his desire to shoehorn the 29-year-old into a City midfield already brimming with expensive adornments.”
