Vincent Kompany will undergo a scan in a Manchester hospital on Monday after suffering a groin problem which caused him to be substituted after 34 minutes of Manchester City's 3-1 win over Everton on Saturday at the Etihad Stadium.

Initial tests have shown that he has a slightly inflamed muscle, though it is not in the same area as the previous groin problem he suffered that kept him out of three Premier League matches before he made his return to the squad for a Champions League match against Viktoria Plzen. Since then Kompany has managed to play four matches for City, including Saturday's against Everton.

The Manchester City captain was understood to be still feeling pain more than 24 hours after sustaining the injury and there are fears he may have strained the muscle.
