Kompany could face three-week lay-off

Published Add your comment

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.
