Kevin De Bruyne suffers knee ligament damageBelgian international likely to be out for up to six weeks

Kevin De Bruyne has suffered knee ligament damage, and is expected to be out for up to six weeks, the club revealed on Friday.

The Belgian midfielder limped off in the latter stages of last night's Carabao Cup victory against Fulham, and underwent scans to confirm the extent of the injury today.

De Bruyne previously injured a ligament in his right knee in August, and as such has only made three appearances so far this season.

Pep Guardiola said: "Unfortunately he is injured but fortunately he will come back in four-six weeks.

"He was so sad. But today less sad and tomorrow he will be stronger again. He can spend time with his family, then it's international break and then he will be back."
