London: Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has been ruled out of the Premier League champions' crucial trip to QPR on Tuesday after suffering a calf injury during his team's 1-0 win at Stoke in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday.

Kompany was forced off after 33 minutes at the Britannia Stadium and City's assistant manager David Platt confirmed the Belgian centre-back faces a spell on the sidelines.

His absence is a major blow for City manager Roberto Mancini, who has already lost Ivory Coast defender Kolo Toure for several weeks on international duty at the African Cup of Nations.
