Vincent Kompany has been ruled out of the FA Cup clash with Huddersfield according to Manchester City correspondent for Goal, Sam Lee.
The City captain was expected to start in the fifth-round tie but Lee confirmed via Twitter that Kompany was absent from training on Friday: ‘Kompany didn't train yesterday and won't play today. Unsure of exact extent of injury but told it's not major’. The Belgium stalwart has endured a torrid few years because of injury and his days at the club look to be numbered as his body fails to cope with the physical demands of playing at the highest level. Kompany has been restricted to just 565 Premier League minutes since the beginning of 2016. During which time, the 30-year-old reported six separate muscular injuries, one of which resulted in surgery keeping him out of Euro 2016. A knee ligament injury meant the centre-back was out for almost two months in November, 2016 and with time running out to prove his fitness, Guardiola must be tempted to dip into the transfer market to bolster the Blues defence.
