Kompany has no injury concerns

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has calmed worries about his fitness.

The defender limped out of Belgium's win over Andorra on Friday in the 56th minute and had strapping on his leg.

All is well. Before the game I informed the coach of a few glitches. He decided to spare me and bring me off.

We did everything we needed to.

In a game like this we must not underestimate the opponent. I am hoping the win will have a good impact on the goal difference.

I am very positive and satisfied with the result and the performance of the team.

Valencia say Alvaro Negredo's recovery from a broken metatarsal remains on track despite the Spain striker having to pull out of training on Monday morning after suffering a blow to his foot.

Negredo joined Valencia from Manchester City on transfer deadline day but has yet to feature for his new club as he battles back from undergoing foot surgery in late July.

The 29-year-old, who was expected to be sidelined for three months, was forced to leave training early on Monday with pain in his foot but tests have confirmed that it is nothing serious.
