Crocked Vincent Kompany should hang up boots for good

Guardiola said Kompany would be out for "the next weeks" ahead of Wednesday's 1-1 draw with Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League and, ahead of the weekend trip to Burnley, the former Bayern Munich boss conceded the Belgium global was facing an absence of up to six weeks after a visit to his favoured physician in Barcelona.

Arsenal passed up the opportunity to assure themselves of qualifying for the knockout stages as group winners after being held to an entertaining draw at home to Paris St Germain.

The result lifted second-placed City to eight points, four behind leaders Barcelona, who won 2-0 at Celtic.

Raffael's goal for Moenchengladbach midway through the first half was canceled out by City's David Silva on the stroke of half-time at Borussia Park. In the second half, the football was so much better but the decision to send off Fernandinho changed the situation.

"It's a massive game and hopefully we can get some points from that", winger and Iceland worldwide Johann Gudmundsson said. We have to go to Europe and play in the same way.

The Belgian global established himself as a leader for City and one of the finest centre-halves in Europe, but his constant injury problems have now tested Guardiola's patience one too many times.

Pep Guardiola insists he will need every player in his squad as he embarks on a busy schedule in the Premier League.

Even so, it is worth remembering that Guardiola's team are unbeaten in five matches in all competitions - a run that includes a memorable victory over Barcelona.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany's injury woe looks set to continue after he was ruled out for between four and six weeks with a medial ligament damage in his right knee.

"It is not nice to see but we are through and that is the most important thing".

City failed to carve out a clear scoring chance and the hosts struck on the break with Stindl charging through and laying the ball off for Raffael to fire in.

A lean and sharp Toure responded by netting both goals in a 2-1 win.

The Clarets have the 4th best home form in the league so far.

Gladbach lost Guinea winger Ibrahima Traore to injury on 40 minutes which unsettled their attack.

Man Utd offer to the worst start in 26 years! Stindl was dismissed for a second yellow card after his stray elbow caught City defender Nicolas Otamendi.

"Bayern Munich, for example, are also second".

At the other end, De Bruyne's thumping effort at goal produced a one-handed save from Sommer, but the hosts continued to push for a victor, albeit with a lack of cutting edge at times.

"Overall, we are very happy with the third place", said Gladbach coach Andre Schubert.
