Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has backed newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers to have a say on the Premier League title race by taking points off some of the big teams this season.
Last season's Championship winners refused to alter their own attacking style against City, and Kompany is confident that other top teams will have problems against Nuno Espirito Santo's charges too.
"They don't behave or play like a Championship team that has just been promoted. I'm confident that they will take points off our competitors," Kompany told reporters.
"They're the typical type of team who is geared up to get big scalps because they have enough quality to play themselves out of situations when they are under pressure... their key players work hard and that's always a good mix."
Despite the encouraging result, Wolves are still searching for their first win of the season and are currently on a club-record run of 17 top-flight matches without a victory.
