David Silva returned to the Manchester City squad for Wednesdays’ UEFA Champions League game in Rome for a 20 minute cameo but it was Samir Nasri who will steal the headlines following a stunning finish midway through the second half to help the Citizens to their first win on Italian soil in Europe.
By his own admission Nasri has taken a while to fully recover from groin surgery but in the past three games the Frenchman is hitting the high levels once again. With Yaya Toure suspended, Captain Vincent Kompany failing a late test – should return against Leicester City – and Edin Dzeko / Stevan Jovetic returning from injury City needed a big performance in the absence of their talismanic striker Sergio Aguero. A crucial Joe Hart save at nil nil, a tireless James Milner working the channel and another clean sheet – their second successive – for defensive duo Mangala and Martin Demichelis combined for a historic result which guaranteed progress into the next round - the draw will take place on Monday.

Vincent Kompany will the miss the trip to the Stadium of Light on Wednesday after failing to recover from the thigh injury he suffered during final minutes of the win at St Marys’ on Sunday.

Although concerned supporters looked on Manuel Pellegrini confirmed that the City captain was withdrawn as a precaution having felt pain in his hamstring – the Chilean coach advised that further examination would indicate whether Kompany was suffering from cramp or he had indeed torn the muscle. However during Tuesdays’ press-conference his absence in game week fourteen was confirmed with a doctor expected to diagnose the extent of his problem – and his likely absence – later that day. The defender has been by plagued by injury for the past 12 months – namely muscular – and this latest setback will come as huge blow given the number of important games coming up. Dedryck Boyata, Martin Demichelis or Bacary Sagna could deputise while Eliaquim Mangala is suspended and Nastasic [thigh] is ruled out.

Belgium coach Marc Wilmots has confirmed that Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany will be absent from training after the player suffered a calf injury in practise.

The City skipper was taken to hospital for a scan to determine the full extent of the issue but is almost certain to miss this week’s friendly international against Australia. The news of any potential problem will come as a huge blow to Manual Pellegrini given Vincent Kompany has been blighted by a variety of muscular injuries - hamstring, groin and thigh - in recent times. A grade one tear could mean up to three weeks out but with Eliaquim Mangala and Matija Nastasic approaching full fitness The Citizens have plenty of depth to help minimise the loss of their influential defender.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is another defender with a great fixture in Week 3.

The most affordable Manchester City defender guaranteed to start (until new signing Eliaquim Mangala becomes a regular), Kompany has had a quiet beginning to the season from a fantasy stand-point, but Stoke at home could bring a clean sheet and the captain is a danger in the opponent's box when going up for set-pieces.

Vincent Kompany has extended his commitment to the Manchester City project by signing a new five year contract on improved terms.

Like David Silva earlier in the week, Vincent Kompany has pledged his remaining prime years to Manchester City. The 28-year-old will now be with City through his age 33 season. This assures that City will have one of the league's top center backs and captains for the foreseeable future. It seems likely that City will continue to sign their core players to extensions and given their depth it will be fascinating to see who is considered core to the project.

Despite the occasion of the Community Shield at Wembley Manchester City have chosen to rest a number of starters as thry recover from World Cup exertions.

Among the missing men for the defending league champions were Vincent Kompany, Pablo Zabaleta, Bacary Sagna, Fernandinho, David Silva and Sergio Aguero's. Matija Nastasic, Fernando, and Steven Jovetic were among the replacements who show the strength of City's squad.

It wasn't pretty but a late goal from Belgium gave them a 1-0 win over Russia and they have now guaranteed themselves a place in the Round of 16.

In a performance quite similar to Argentina's yesterday, substantial favorites Belgium seemed to sleepwalk through almost the entire match, only to nick a goal in the final minutes to win. It was Eden Hazard who orchestrated the goal, dribbling down to the Russian goal line and then picking out the youngster Divock Origi, who finished confidently and has quickly asserted himself a talent that needs to start. Romelu Lukaku had his 2nd straight poor showing but Kompany and the Belgian defense kept things tidy. We may see several changes in their final group match with their fate already sealed.

Vincent Kompany will return from suspension to bolster Manchester City's back-line in the Old Trafford showdown on Tuesday.

Kompany sat out City's 5-0 win over Fulham after his sending-off in the previous week's win at Hull but will return to partner Martin Demichelis tonight. Sergio Aguero and Matija Nastasic remain out due to injury, but aside from that Manuel Pellegrini has a full strength squad to choose from.

Vincent Kompany salvaged a late goal as Manchester City lost 4-1 on aggregate to Barcelona in their first-ever appearance in the Champions League knock-out stages.

It was always going to be difficult for City to come back from two away goals down to Barcelona at the Camp Nou. With City down 2-0 heading into today's match they had to take the game to Barcelona which opened up opportunities for Lionel Messi and company all evening. Through luck and skill they managed to keep Barca out until the 67th minute but Messi effectively ended the tie with a goal. In the late going Pablo Zabaleta was shown a red card, Vincent Kompany scored a consolation goal and Dani Alves scored for the final 4-1 aggregate margin.

Manchester City took a two goal advantage in the first half, one courtesy of Vincent Kompany but allowed Fulham to bring the game level in the second half, with an own goal from Kompany included, only to tally two more late in a 2-4 roller coaster victory.

Quite the Jekyll and Hyde performance from City, but eventually their class reigned supreme despite their defensive struggles away from home. Kompany's O.G. was absolutely bizarre, playing with blood trickling from a cut above his right eye, he attempted to clear a cross inside the box and sent a backwards trick shot that would have been in the running for goal of the season had it been intended for the right net. Seven players contributed a goal or assist for the Sky Blues, as they present plenty of options to fantasy managers during the festive period. Yaya Toure, scoring his 9th of the season seems the safest bet to avoid rotation during this stretch.

Manchester City have named captain Vincent Kompany in the squad to fact West Brom after a two-month absence with a thigh injury.

Belgium defender Kompany has missed the last 10 games in all competitions so his return is a big boost for City and he could take his place alongside Martin Demichelis, with Joleon Lescott relegated to the bench. Matija Nastasic, David Silva and Stevan Jovetic are still sidelined with injury.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has returned to training with the squad after six weeks out.

This is great news for Manchester City, with Kompany expected to be ready play within a week, although the game against Swansea this weekend will probably come too soon. The chances are the captain will replace Martin Demichelis when he does return to first team action, renewing his partnership with Matija Nastasic at the centre of the City defence.

The Belgian Football Association is to send their national team physiotherapist, Lieven Maesschalck, to Manchester City on Friday in an effort to assess the extent of Vincent Kompany’s groin problem

Kompany has been plagued by a variety of muscle injuries over the past 12 months, and Manuel Pellegrini, the City manager, confirmed last week that he had no chance of returning before next week’s international break. Belgium have concerns about his long term fitness ahead of next summer's World Cup and want to check how serious this latest problem is.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is still training alone after suffering a setback in his recovery from a groin injury and is certain to miss at least the club’s next two games and in all likelihood next week’s Champions League game with CSKA Moscow.

There is no point in aggravating the injury further by City rushing Kompany back, so expect him to miss the next three games. Manuel Pellegrini is likely to partner Matija Nastasic with Martin Demichelis against Norwich this weekend, with Joleon Lescott seemingly out of favour after he was left out of the match-day squad against Chelsea.
