The Belgium international defender sustained a groin problem in the first league match of the new campaign against Newcastle.

Kompany clarified the injury is not related to any previous problem, and he expects to be available in the coming weeks.

"I'll be out for a little while but not too long," said Kompany. "I may miss the internationals but I hope to be back after that.

"I've been here before and I'm going to work hard to get back as quickly as possible. There are worse things that can happen but the only disappointment is that the season began so positively for me and everything went really well during pre-season.

"There is a protocol to follow with any injury and there is a time scale that goes with that. If I follow that schedule, I know when I'll be back in a certain amount of weeks and possibly sooner.

"It is a freak injury that has nothing to do with the previous problems - it can happen - but I know when I return, I'll be absolutely fine."

There are Liverpool fans arguing that Luis Suarez is nowhere near Diego Costa's sh*t-house league but we have plenty of love for the agitator too. Oh and Spurs...

Erm... Balotelli To QPR..?

It's an afternoon Mailbox that offers the reaction to the reaction, with a defence for Diego Costa offered, and Balotelli mooted to move to QPR. Plus a silly idea about the Mails...
