After all their efforts to stop City from clinching the league in their 3-2 derby win last week, United offered a clear reminder of why they have not been serious contenders for the title this year with an abject display, lacking in creativity.
"I had a feeling when I woke up this morning", Kompany said. "I knew that sooner or later that would be and if I was in that position I would be very upset if someone said they won the title because Manchester United lost", he said.
In the press conference before United's league game against West Brom, the Portuguese simply said there was nothing he could do about the current situation.
An impressive performance on Saturday saw City condemn Spurs to a first Premier League loss since the teams last met, at the Etihad back in December.
Jay Rodriguez found the net for the Baggies in the 73rd minute with a close-range header from a few yards out after Nemanja Matic headed the ball into his path following a corner, 0-1.
"I won eight titles and I am not [over] the moon because I won against Manchester City", he added.
Pep Guardiola will be delighted to have won two trophies this season, but will be determined to go one step further and win the Champions League next season - something he has not done since leaving Barcelona in 2012. As I was saying: this is a very hard league and all the top-six teams, we knew in advance that two of them would be outside the Champions League positions.
The 28 year old hasn't had the best campaign this time around but has struggled with injuries and will need to win over his manager once more.
"We played a bad game this Sunday".
The irony that this is exactly how Manchester City play will not be lost on anyone.
"It was not done even if we won", he said. West Brom are 10 points behind the safety zone with only five games remaining.
