Manchester City have been left sweating over the fitness of their captain Vincent Kompany after the Belgian suffered a groin injury on Saturday.
The Manchester City skipper will know the the extent of the injury he suffered last week today, following a scan.
The Belgian was forced off the field against Everton after suffering a groin injury, with initial reports suggesting he may have a strain rather than a tear.
Kompany was kept out of action for a month at the start of the season following a tear to his groin that kept him out of action until the Manchester derby, which they won 4-1.
The centre back's scan will determine whether he joins up with Belgium for their World Cup qualifiers, or remains at City's training ground for treatment.
Despite the possible absence of their captain, summer signing Martin Demichelis is due back in training next Monday following damage to his knee ligaments.
The Argentine is expected to complete his work with the physio's this week but Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini insists it is too early to know when he will be fit.
“It’s too early to know if he will be ready after the international break – maybe he can do,” said boss Manuel Pellegrini to reporters.
“If Kompany and Demichelis are out we have only Matija Nastasic and Joleon Lescott, but they did very well. We have to be optimistic and see what happens in the international break.”
