Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany admits the chance to clinch the English Premier League title against rivals Manchester United is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

David Silva struck twice in a sublime performance as the league leaders recorded a straightforward 2-0 win against Stoke on Monday. The Spain midfielder expertly converted Raheem Sterling's 10th-minute cross before getting on the end of Gabriel Jesus' lofted pass to make it 2-0 early in the second half.

City, who restored their 16-point lead at the top of the table, remain on course to claim the title as early as April 7 after their game with rivals Manchester United.

Kompany knows work has to be done in their next EPL game against Everton if they are to get that chance, but he said: "Everybody in the blue side of Manchester knows it's a once in a lifetime opportunity. We have one game before that which will be difficult. It is not going to be handed to us."
