Pep Guardiola is becoming increasingly frustrated with Vincent Kompany after the City skipper was forced off after 11 minutes at St James’ Park due to another calf issue.
The injury plagued centre-back was making his second start of the festive programme having just recovered from a similar problem earlier this month. Kompany limped through the opening exchanges before finally succumbing to the injury, a setback which, is likely to force Guardiola to spend during the January window. Guardiola opted to deploy Fernandinho in defence [over Mangala] following an attacking switch which saw Gabriel Jesus enter the fray, a decision probably based on Newcastle’s negative tactics. However, there will be tougher tests ahead, and once the Champions League is back underway, Pep will want to ensure he has adequate cover with his side potentially fighting on four fronts. Having missed out on Virgil van Dijk [Liverpool], Jonny Evans has been touted a potential target with Baggies boss Alan Pardew admitting that he doesn’t know if the club can retain the services of their prize asset.
