Kompany aggravated his hamstring injury during Manchester City's Premier League match against Leicester City on Saturday, and he is expected to be sidelined for the rest of 2014, the BBC reports.

Kompany missed the previous three matches because of the hamstring injury before hurting himself again with less than 15 minutes left. With Kompany sidelined, Eliaquim Mangala and Martin Demichelis will continue to start in the center of the City defense.

Kompany (hamstring) returned to training this week, and he could feature in Wednesday's Champions League match against Roma, ESPN FC reports.

Kompany has been sidelined for the past two games after picking up the injury against Southampton on Nov. 30. His return would be a huge boost for the side, as a win Wednesday would send them into the Champions League round of 16.

Kompany (hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Everton, and he is in a race to be fit for Wednesday's Champions League match against Roma, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Kompany will not travel for Wednesday's Premier League match at Sunderland due to the hamstring injury he picked up Sunday at Southampton, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Kompany was already believed to be missing the match, but the lack of travel confirms it. He is undergoing additional scans to determine the severity of the injury, but his availability for Saturday's match against Everton in doubt.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Kompany picked up a hamstring injury during Sunday's 3-0 win at Southampton, and he will not play Wednesday against Sunderland. "He has a problem with his hamstring," manager Manuel Pellegrini said after the match. "We will see with the doctor how important it is but at this moment, I cannot tell you exactly what he has. We will see."

Pellegrini intimated that Kompany was removed for precautionary reasons, but it was obviously enough to already rule him out against the Black Cats. Dedryck Boyata could get his first start of the season, as Martin Demichelis is likely to start in place of Eliaquim Mangala, who is suspended after picking up two yellow cards against Southampton.

Kompany, who suffered a groin injury while playing for Belgium over the international break, started and played all 90 minutes, though he picked up a yellow card, in Manchester City's 2-1 win over Swansea City on Saturday.

Kompany's fantasy value is highly dependent on posting clean sheets, as he has no goals or assists this season, but he's gotten only three shutouts thus far, giving little return for his usually-high price in salary cap formats.

Kompany (groin) is in the starting XI for Saturday's match against Swansea.

Kompany came into the weekend a doubt due to a groin injury that he suffered during the international break, but he recovered in time to start against a decently-attacking Swansea side.
