Liverpool boosted as Man City defensive star could miss upcoming clash

Liverpool looks to have been given a boost ahead of their match against Manchester City as Vincent Kompany is ruled doubtful, Express reports.

The 29-year-old has struggled with a number of injury concerns in recent months as he is now likely to sit out of the upcoming friendlies against Italy and Spain.

City manager Manuel Pellegrini was previously said to be angry with Belgium boss Marc Wilmots over his usage of Kompany despite his ongoing injury problems.

Despite warning his national team boss about the knock, Wilmots told Pellegrini that if the centre-back wanted to play, he will not stop him, a move which seems to have angered the club.

Kompany has already missed a number of matches for his side given two calf injuries and is now a doubt for the upcoming game against Liverpool on November 21st.

His potential unavailability will be seen as yet another blow for the club given that Sergio Aguero, David Silva, Pablo Zabaleta, and Samir Nasri are also facing a fight to be fit for their clash with the Reds.
