Kompany ruled out with groin injury

Manchester City’s Vincent Kompany will be out of action for at least two weeks after the City captain picked up the injury during his side’s empathic 4-0 win against Newcastle in their opening match of the new Premier League season last night.

Due to have a scan on the problem today, that has been delayed a further 24 hours in order to let the injury settle and allow medics to better diagnose the problem.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini predicted straight after the game that Kompany would miss ‘one or two weeks’ however there are now fears that this could be longer depending on what the scans reveal.

Kompany sustained the injury during the second half when he fell to the ground and looked in visible discomfort as he left the pitch.

The club will be hoping that the injury is simply a strain rather than a tear which would see Kompany sidelined for a considerable amount of time and may even need surgical intervention.
