Vincent Kompany calf injury fears allayed for Manchester City

Manchester City have been handed a fitness boost ahead of a potentially crucial week in their season after a scan on Vincent Kompany's calf showed no serious injury concerns for the club captain.

- Mooney: How did Man City do in the window?

Kompany, 28, is with the Belgium squad preparing for Thursday's friendly against Australia but went to hospital earlier on Wednesday to have his condition assessed.

However, after being accompanied by the national team's doctor for the scan, Kompany was diagnosed with a minor problem and could even start against the Socceroos.

"Good news for Vincent Kompany," Belgium coach Wilmots tweeted. "He will train tomorrow and we will see if he can play. Without taking risks of course!"

Wilmots also said that either Kompany or Standard Liege defender Laurent Ciman would be in his starting XI.

City face Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Chelsea in the space of eight days after the international break.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini's biggest summer signing was a centre-back, the 32 million-pound France international Eliaquim Mangala, but he is yet to feature. The former Porto player could make his debut in one of the most demanding fixtures of the season.

City also still have Matija Nastasic to call on after reportedly rejecting multiple inquiries on deadline day for the Serbia international, despite the defender struggling for appearances under Pellegrini.
