BREAKING NEWS! Vincent Kompany is injured again.

It is painful to make this a joke, but that is exactly what Kompany's injury struggles in the last few years have become: a painful joke. And after working for over four months on recovering from a groin injury, the Manchester City captain is once again sidelined.

And according to the club, it's a groin injury.

City skipper Vincent Kompany is receiving treatment for a groin injury sustained in Wednesday's EFL Cup win over Swansea. No date has yet been set for his return.

The bright side on all of this, if there is one, is that Kompany hasn't injured his calf again, which happened fifteen (FIFTEEN!!!) times over the last two-plus years. However, that's the same injury that caused him to miss time this summer, which is a worrying sign. A few reports say Kompany hasn't torn his adductor muscle, but it's a muscle fatigue, which is the best possible news.

Hopefully Vinny can come back soon. He was amazing in his 92 minutes against the Swans, looking as good as we've seen in a while. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.

Although we have wished a speedy recovery almost 20 times over the last few years...
