Onouha ruled out

News that will certainly intensify speculation that defensive reinforcements will be top of the January wanted list:
The defender strained a calf muscle during Saturday’s win over Sunderland and now faces a recovery period of three to four weeks. This news comes the day after Joleon Lescott had his knee operation to remove some floating bone, but the summer purchase from Everton is also out until into the New Year.
Whilst Toure and Kompany will be the likely pairing this weekend, we will look very short once Toure heads off to the African Cup of Nations.

Hopefully, Lescott and/or Onouha makes a quicker than expected recovery.
