Kompany to miss out for City

Kompany to miss out for City

Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany is a major doubt for tomorrow’s trip to Newcastle.

Kompany is struggling with a hamstring injury and has only a “two per cent” chance of being fit, according to manager Roberto Mancini.

Gareth Barry serves a one-match ban, whilst Jack Rodwell and James Milner (both hamstring) and Micah Richards (knee) are also missing.

Provisional squad: Hart, Pantilimon, Wright, Zabaleta, Maicon, Kompany, Nastasic, K Toure, Lescott, Clichy, Y Toure, Nasri, Silva, Garcia, Razak, Sinclair, Balotelli, Tevez, Aguero, Dzeko, Tchuimeni-Nimely.
