Man City defender Vincent Kompany sidelined by leg injury for FA Cup tie

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany missed his side's FA Cup fifth-round clash at Huddersfield with a leg injury, manager Pep Guardiola has announced.

The 30-year-old defender was not included in the squad for the goalless draw at the John Smith's Stadium after suffering what is hoped to be a minor knock in training.

Guardiola said: "Two days ago he felt something in his leg. It is not a big, big issue but today he was not able to play."

Injury-plagued Kompany has made just one appearance since recovering from a knee injury suffered in November, and only six all season.
