Kompany has been ruled out for Sunday's match against West Ham, and he could miss the rest of the season, manager Manuel Pellegrini said Friday. "Vincent is injured," Pellegrini said. "It's very difficult to know (how long he'll be out). He has a muscle injury -- we don't know how many weeks. You don't know if he will be fit before the end of the season."

While Kompany hasn't had a great season, his absence will be a huge void to fill for City. Martin Demichelis and Eliaquim Mangala will likely start in the center of the defense while Kompany is sidelined, with youngster Dedryck Boyata available after recovering from a knee injury.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Kompany, who was an injury doubt because of a hamstring injury, had six clearances and one tackle during Manchester City's 4-2 loss to Manchester United on Sunday.

The CIty defense was just picked apart time and again Sunday, and while Kompany wasn't at the center of the issues, he certainly did little to help. City, who are now just five points ahead of fifth-place Southampton, will look to bounce back Sunday against West Ham.

Kompany (hamstring) is an injury doubt for Sunday's match against Manchester United at Old Trafford, manager Manuel Pellegrini said Friday.

Kompany has been a shell of himself this season, but his absence would still be a hit in a massive game for City. If he is unable to play, Eliaquim Mangala and Martin Demichelis will likely be the starting centerbacks.

Kompany had 51 passes but did not record a single tack,e interception, clearance or blocked shot during Manchester City's 3-0 win over West Brom on Saturday.

West Brom went down to 10 men just 90 seconds into the match, giving Kompany little do as City blitzed the Baggies to the tune of 43 shots, including 16 on goal. The clean sheet was Kompany's second of 2015.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini said Friday that Kompany is 100 percent fit for Sunday's match against Arsenal.

Kompany returned from a calf injury last weekend against Everton, though he was an unused substitute. Now fully fit, he is likely to start Sunday's match alongside Eliaqium Mangala or Martin Demichelis.

Kompany (calf) was an unused substitute during Manchester City's 1-1 draw with Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini stated earlier this week that Kompany was back to fitness, so it's a bit surprising that he stuck with Martin Demichelis and Eliquim Mangala as his centerbacks. Nevertheless, Kompany is expected to be back in the starting XI for next Sunday's pivotal match against Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium.

Kompany could return from his calf injury Saturday against Everton, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Kompany apparently could have played in last weekend's FA Cup win over Sheffield Wednesday, but he was held out with a number of big Premier League matches coming up. His return to the starting XI will push either Martin Demichelis or Eliaquim Mangala to the bench.

Kompany (calf) has been ruled out for Thursday's match against Sunderland.

Kompany is still unable to train fully and he'll sit again, with Martin Demichelis and Eliaquim Mangala expected to start in the center of the Man City defense once again.
