Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany is a major doubt for Saturday's Premier League trip to Newcastle.

Kompany a major doubt

Kompany is struggling with a hamstring injury and has only a "two per cent" chance of being fit, according to manager Roberto Mancini.

Gareth Barry serves a one-match ban, whilst Jack Rodwell and James Milner (both hamstring) and Micah Richards (knee) are also missing.

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew could be without Hatem Ben Arfa.

Midfielder Ben Arfa, who made a goal-scoring return against Fulham on Monday night after missing four games due to a hamstring problem, is a major doubt after aggravating the injury.

Steven Taylor (hamstring) and Yohan Cabaye (groin surgery) remain on Newcastle's long-term casualty list.

Teams:

Newcastle (from): Krul, Elliot, Harper, Simpson, Santon, Ferguson, Tavernier, Coloccini, Williamson, Perch, Tiote, Anita, Bigirimana, Gutierrez, Marveaux, Sammy Ameobi, Obertan, Ba, Cisse, Shola Ameobi, Ranger.

Manchester City (from): Hart, Pantilimon, Wright, Zabaleta, Maicon, Kompany, Nastasic, K Toure, Lescott, Clichy, Y Toure, Nasri, Silva, Garcia, Razak, Sinclair, Balotelli, Tevez, Aguero, Dzeko, Tchuimeni-Nimely.
