Vincent Kompany injury: Manchester City defender hauled off, replaced by Kolo Toure

It's another blow for Manchester City - they've lost their captain, Vincent Kompany, to injury just 20 minutes into the first half.

The Belgian international appeared to be struggling during the game, and was forced to limp off, with Kolo Toure replacing him. With City 1-0 down thanks to Wayne Rooney's opener, it's another setback they could do without, particularly if the injury keeps him out of action for future fixtures - although it didn't appear to be too serious.

Kompany hasn't enjoyed the best of form this season, but he's still an integral part of City's defence, although they were culpable for the opening goal. So far it's been as expected... City dominant over United's nonexistant midfield, but United looking far more dangerous when they do get forward against a dodgy City defence.... one which just got a whole lot dodgier.

Stay tuned to this thread for further updates on the game and Kompany's injury.
