Belgium has been in eye-catching form all campaign long.
Manchester City have been handed a major injury scare ahead of Sunday afternoon’s Premier League encounter with title rivals Liverpool at Anfield after inspirational captain Vincent Kompany was forced to limp out of training with a suspected knee injury, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.

The Belgium international was training with the rest of the City first-team squad at their Carrington base on Saturday afternoon when the central defender collided with England right-back Micah Richards while practising a free-kick routine.
And Kompany immediately collapsed to the floor holding his left knee, before the skipper was then carried off by his team-mates and City’s medical staff to have the problem looked at further, with an update on the injury expected shortly.
Either way, though, it will be a huge worry to City head coach Manuel Pellegrini as he goes through final preparations ahead of the trip to take on Premier League leaders Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday lunch time in a fixture that many experts are predicting could ultimately decide the outcome of the title.
The Merseyside giants are currently four points ahead of City, however, they have played two more games than their rivals.
