Vincent Kompany refused to talk about the Premier League title despite Manchester City going goal-crazy again on their way to the summit.

Kompany was one of five different scorers in a 5-1 win at Tottenham that vaulted Manuel Pellegrini's men ahead of Arsenal in the table.

The Blues have now scored five on eight occasions this season and their overall tally is up to 115, but Kompany does not think the title is a given.

"I don't even want to talk about that at the moment," he told BT Sport.

"I'm so happy with the win and the way we played, not just the result. We are enjoying it and it's a great time to be part of things.

"There is still no silverware, a lot of games are to be played. We'll stay calm and prepare for the next game."

Kompany's goal was City's last, with Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure (penalty), Edin Dzeko and Stefan Jovetic the other scorers. Bad news came, though, with Aguero limping off before the break, not long after coming back from an injury.

"It's bad news of course, we will have to see, we don't know how bad it is but hopefully he'll be back very soon," Kompany added.

"The good news is Jovetic stepped up and was the player we know he can be."
