Plzen v Man City preview
Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany could return to action as his team open their latest Champions League campaign away to Czech side Viktoria Plzen.
The influential defender, who has been out since suffering a groin injury in City's first game of the season, has travelled with the squad and is hoping to prove his fitness to play at the Doosan Arena.
His return would be much welcomed by manager Manuel Pellegrini, who is already without three other defenders.
Micah Richards (hamstring), Martin Demichelis (knee) and Gael Clichy are all sidelined, along with playmaker David Silva (thigh).
