Man City Injury News: Midfielder ruled out for four to six weeks with a hamstring injury


Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola confirmed that midfielder Kevin De Bruyne will remain sidelined for a couple of weeks with a hamstring injury.

The 29-year-old playmaker was substituted at 60th-minute in Wednesday’s 2-0 win over Aston Villa at the Etihad. The Belgian has been in prime form with 15 assists in 23 games and his absence will be a huge blow for Pep Guardiola, who updated on the midfielder’s injury.

“The doctor said after reviewing the scan Kevin will be out for four to six weeks. It’s a big blow, but we have to move forward. I’m not saying anything that anyone doesn’t know – it is unfortunate for him and for us and we have to find a solution because everyone in their own life is struggling in the situation we are living in and we have to adapt.” Guardiola spoke to the press ahead of FA Cup tie against Cheltenham.

With that being said, De Bruyne may miss eight to ten matches for the Etihad residents including Champions League’s RO16 first-leg tie against Borussia Monchengladbach.

Man City are in sublime form since the start of December with nine consecutive wins in all competitions and no wonder why Pep Guardiola’s men are sitting second in the Premier League. However, the absence of their talismanic man will be a huge blow for them.

Which important matches will KDB miss?

The Belgian midfielder will miss PL matches against title-contenders Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspurs. He will also be unavailable for the home clash against Arsenal and Champions League tie against Monchengladbach on 24th February.
