Kompany returned to training this past week and manager Manuel Pellegrini believes he'll be back working with the squad fully next week.

It's been an injury-riddled season for Kompany, but this is good news for the center back. Kompany has played a full 90 minutes eight times this season and Manchester City has only allowed one goal in that period. Nicolas Otamendi remains the main beneficiary, though he doesn't have a great matchup against Leicester City on Saturday.

Vincent Kompany: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Kompany (calf) returned to first-team training Thursday.

Kompany has been sidelined since the Boxing Day fixture versus Sunderland. His return would be a huge boost for the Citizens, who enter a crucial February segment of the schedule.

Kompany (calf) may return earlier than expected. According to Manuel Pellegrini, he could be available in two weeks time, The Guardian reports.

Kompany is a key part of the back line for Man City and with him on the pitch they have conceded just once in his nine appearances. The injury was thought to sideline the captain for six weeks, however, he'll most likely return earlier and have a fitness test a few weeks from now to see if he's ready to return.

Kompany is expected to miss significant time with his latest calf injury, with manager Manuel Pellegrini saying the defender could return in "the last part of the season," The Guardian reports.

Kompany has dealt with 13 different calf injuries since joining the club in 2008, and his latest absence is forcing City to use Nicolas Otamendi and Martin Demichelis in central defense, as Eliaquim Mangala is out with a hamstring injury. City have been very good defensively with Kompany on the pitch, but they're not nearly as dominant without him.

Kompany came off the bench Saturday against Sunderland but lasted fewer than 10 minutes before suffering a calf injury.

Kompany missed six weeks with a calf concern before returning Saturday, but his latest absence will now keep Eliaquim Mangala and Nicolas Otamendi as the starting centerbacks, with Martin Demichelis also a possibility.

Kompany (calf) is on the bench Saturday against Sunderland.

Kompany has been out for six weeks, so it's not surprising that he fails to make the starting lineup in his return. Nicolas Otamendi and Eliaquim Mangala are the two starting centerbacks Saturday, with Kompany likely to replace one of them Tuesday against Leicester City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Kompany (calf) is fit to play Saturday against Sunderland.

Kompany has been sidelined for six weeks due to the ailment, and the centerback pairing of Nicolas Otamendi and Eliaquim Mangala have really struggled together. Manager Manuel Pellegrini did not indicate whether Kompany would start the match, and while the opponent isn't exactly an offensive juggernaut, the skipper's return will be very important for the team.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Kompany could return for the Boxing Day match against Sunderland as he continues to recover from a calf injury, the Manchester Evening News reports.

The captain has not played since suffering the injury in early November, but he has participated in training the last two days and could be fit during the holiday period. Eliaquim Mangala and Nicolas Otamendi have held down the fort at center back in Kompany's absence, with the former being the likelier of the two to move back to the bench when he returns.
