Manchester City received a boost on Monday when captain Vincent Kompany took part in training ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League quarter-final second leg at home to Paris Saint-Germain.

The Belgium centre-back, 30, has not played since injuring his calf against Dynamo Kiev last month and missed last week’s first leg in Paris, which saw City score two valuable away goals in a 2-2 draw.

But he took part in City’s final pre-match training session at the club’s City Football Academy complex, along with midfielder David Silva, who missed Saturday’s 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion with an ankle problem.

City are bidding to reach the Champions League semi-finals for the first time, while French champions PSG graced the last four once in 1995.
