Kompany injury blow

Some not so positive news following yesterdays victory:
Manchester City have been hit by a fresh injury problem with Vincent Kompany expected to be out for at least two weeks with a groin strain.

The big defender, who has been a revelation at centre-back during City's defensive injury crisis, limped out of Sunday's 2-0 win over Portsmouth.
With the emergence of Dedryck Boyata and return to the line up of Kolo Toure (plus the imminent return of Kolo Toure) the centre of defence is not an area we are particularly short in.

However, Kompany has been excellent since he stepped into the breach when Roberto Mancini arrived amidst a raft of injuries. So much so that he must be in contention for the January player of the month award (although like JPB I think Tevez has shaded it) and has been both an assuring and commanding presence at the back.
