Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has confirmed the club intend to appeal against Vincent Kompany's red card in Sunday's 3-2 defeat to Manchester United.
Defender Kompany was sent off for a tackle on Nani 11 minutes into the FA Cup third-round tie and, as the City captain has already been sent off for a straight red card offence once this season, he is facing a four-match ban unless he can overturn the suspension.
"We will appeal," said Mancini. "I am sure we will win."
