Kompany picked up a yellow card, but posted a clean sheet during Manchester City's 2-0 win over Newcastle on Sunday.

Kompany doesn't get involved in the attack much, although he's been known to score on the occasional corner and set piece. That being said, his fantasy value lies in his ability to register clean sheets, which he did Sunday. It will likely be a bit tougher in Gameweek 2, as City host the high-powered Liverpool attack at the Etihad.

Kompany, who limped out of training Saturday with an injury, is in the starting XI for Sunday's match against Liverpool at Anfield.

A huge boost for City, who were quite concerned that Kompany may miss out after suffering his injury so close to Sunday's match. With such a big game, it's not surprising that Kompany made his way back, although it is certainly possible he could be left out of the starting XI for Wednesday's home match against Sunderland.

Kompany limped out of training Saturday after landing awkwardly following an aerial challenge, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Kompany is now considered a serious injury doubt for Sunday's match against Liverpool, although the club was quick to announce that he did travel for the match and that he left Saturday's training session as a precaution. It is unclear how serious the injury is, but with a quick turnaround to Wednesday's match against Sunderland, Kompany could be in line to miss multiple games.
