Kevin De Bruyne suffers "knee ligament" injury in training

Kevin De Bruyne will undergo a scan tomorrow

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne is facing a spell on the sidelines after injuring his right knee in training on Wednesday.

Manchester City have announced that playmaker Kevin De Bruyne is to undergo a scan on a knee injury sustained in training on Wednesday.

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.

If out for two months, De Bruyne would miss the start of City's Champions League campaign and their Premier League clash at Liverpool on October 7.

The extent of the injury is not yet known but the staff at Man City are reportedly fearing that he could be ruled out of action for more than two months.

Tropical Storm Ileana also is growing while racing John up the coastline and is forecast to reach hurricane strength later Monday. An area of low pressure we've been watching for the past few days has intensified to Subtropical Storm Debby.

Despite having a lot strength in depth in the squad, De Bruyne is arguably the club's best player and an extended absence would have an impact on the team.

But the importance of De Bruyne, easily the club's best player in the record-breaking 2017/18 season, can not be overstated.

City, who began their title defence with a 2-0 victory at Arsenal, next play Huddersfield at home on Sunday.

Although perhaps none are as influential as De Bruyne, the likes of Bernardo Silva, Leroy Sane and Ilkay Gundogan would very likely be starters in any other Premier League side.
