Vincent Kompany's fitness issues continue to be one of the primary reasons many experts do not believe the Blues can win the Premier League title this season. But this morning, the official club website released a statement accompanied by photos regarding Kompany:

Vincent Kompany's given the City squad a welcome boost by returning to first team training following a six-week lay-off.

The skipper's been working hard to return to fitness since his last outing against Sunderland on Boxing Day, and Blues fans everywhere will be delighted to see him back in action alongside his team-mates at the City Football Academy.

Manuel Pellegrini will reveal when the Belgian is likely to return during Friday's press conference.

The Blues sitting just three points from the top of the table in second place face table-toppers Leicester City at the Etihad on Saturday at 12:45pm BST. The winner of the match will enter the final 13 fixtures atop the Premier League table.
