The Belgian insists the Citizens will not celebrate until they win the Premier League and believes the next match against Wolves could be even more important for the club
City moved five points clear at the top of the league following their 6-1 in win at Old Trafford on Sunday, but City boss Roberto Mancini has called for caution from his side.
And his view has been echoed by Kompany, who told his team-mates to avoid complacency by continuing their progress with a win against Wolves in the league, following their match against the same opposition in the League Cup on Wednesday.
"It was one of those days where you've written history, but it's not the greatest goal this season," Kompany told the Daily Mirror.
"The greatest goal for us is to hopefully be champions and lift trophies, so that's when we'll celebrate.
"It was a beautiful day and we made history, but it was only three points. That's how we have to look at it.
"It was only three points and maybe the game against Wolves is more important."
