Kevin De Bruyne suffers knee injury at Manchester City training

Manchester City have confirmed midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has injured his right knee in training.

According to fan-group City Watch, De Bruyne picked up the injury during a training session on Wednesday, and could now be facing several months on the sidelines.

Had it not been for Mohamed Salah's Golden Boot-winning 32 strikes then De Bruyne would nearly certainly have won PFA Player of the Year, highlighting just how important he was last campaign.

If the initial diagnostics are correct, De Bruyne is likely to return at the end of October, meaning he will miss at least eight Premier League fixtures.

The Belgian was a key part of City's dominance last season as he registered a league-best 16 assists and added eight goals as Pep Guardiola's men romped to the title. The other teams are always going to push us, Liverpool did what we did a year ago.

"I don't agree that we have to win the Champions League to be a success". It will be a good battle between the top sides. Liverpool spent the most this year, but last year it was us and Manchester United.
