Club: Manchester City
The current captain of Manchester City has been the rock of the team.
Known for his toughness in the centre of defense, Kompany's presence at the back gives City fans some kind of assurance that all is good—business as usual.
Having the best attackers in your team can at times cause a lack of concentration and at times give away cheap goals, but at City that has seemed to be impossible this season.
Kompany has just completed a four-match suspension for his tackle (with intent) on Manchester United's Nani.
His absence has been evident, with Stefan Savic unable to keep the same composure in tough situations.
