9. END OF NEWS CONFERENCE

STORY: Manchester City’s injured captain Vincent Kompany will return to the team ahead of schedule, but will miss Wednesday’s (January 27) League Cup semi-final against Everton, manager Manuel Pellegrini said on Tuesday (January 26).

Everton go into the semi-final with a 2-1 advantage from the first leg, but Pellegrini is confident his side have what it takes to secure the 1-0 home win that is the minimum needed to see them through to Wembley.

City’s influential Belgian centre-back has endured an injury-plagued season, with his latest setback ruling him out of action since Dec. 26.

Pellegrini dismissed a suggestion from a reporter that Kompany’s return from a persistent calf injury would be in six weeks rather than two.

“No, no, I don’t think so. I think that Vincent will return in a couple of weeks as we said last press conference,” said Pellegrini. “It is very important how he improves the next two weeks but I think he will be fit before.”

This will come as a relief to a team who always seem to struggle defensively in his absence, with City keeping clean sheets in seven of the nine Premier League games that Kompany has featured in this season, compared to just four in 14 without him.

Pellegrini assured fans that the club was working hard to prevent the Belgian’s recurrent injuries.

“Be sure that we are doing all we can to review Vincent in different places, with different doctors, so I hope now for him because it is very sad for him not to play for our team. I hope that now when he recovers until the end of the season he will be fit,” said Pellegrini.

City have played Everton twice already in the last month, so are familiar with the team. Pellegrini said Everton might be motivated to reach the final at Wembley but so too was his team.

“If you have rights (are entitled) in the final it is important to play the final in Wembley. I think that we already play with Everton, the both other games were very close but tomorrow for our team is very important. Maybe Everton has not the right to a final many years ago, will be more motivated but I am sure our team will do all what we can to play the final.”

The Chilean also confirmed that Joe Hart would be replaced by back-up keeper Willy Caballero against Everton and that the Argentine would retain his place for Saturday’s FA Cup clash at Aston Villa.

“Yes he will start probably the next two games because I trust a lot in Willy,” said Pellegrini. “He is a very good goalkeeper. I think one of the important things why Joe Hart has improved a lot his performance is that he was working a lot with Willy every day and he feels that he has important competition behind him.”
