Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany could be out of action for another three weeks, manager Roberto Mancini believes.

Kompany limped out of last week's FA Cup fourth-round win at Stoke with a calf strain and missed the champions' goalless draw at QPR in the Barclays Premier League on Tuesday.

The Belgium centre-back will definitely miss Sunday's clash with Liverpool and next week's trip to Southampton and Mancini already seems to have ruled him out of the FA Cup fifth-round tie with Leeds on February 17. That would make the home game against Chelsea on February 24 the most likely comeback date.
