Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne is likely to face a spell on the sidelines after injuring his right knee in training, the Premier League champions said on Wednesday.
The 27-year-old, who enjoyed a superb World Cup as Belgium advanced to the semi-finals, is currently undergoing tests to assess the gravity of the injury.
“Kevin De Bruyne is undergoing tests on his right knee after sustaining an injury in training on Wednesday,” read a club statement on its website.
The extent of the problem is yet to be known and we'll bring you further updates on Kevin’s condition in due course.” De Bruyne, who has been at Manchester City since 2015, scored eight goals and provided 16 assists last season in a sequence of dynamic performances for the champions.
De Bruyne faces two months out after suffering the injury when he caught his studs in the turf before leaving the training ground on crutches. The Daily Telegraph said he had suffered knee ligament damage similar to the injury he sustained in a league game with Everton in January 2016 and which kept him out of the team for two months.
Due to being given three weeks off following the World Cup he did not play a role in the Community Shield win against Chelsea but came on for a cameo role of half an hour in the 2-0 opening Premier League victory over Arsenal last Sunday.

Let this two months off not be true for my best player as it will affect our performance. I know Chelsea, Man U, Liverpool fans are happy over this news.

My brother, I'm not worried about how we are going to faré. A big miss it will be but it will not change our game. Haven't you been watching our games, Bernardo Silva is beauty to behold in the same wing. What about David Silva, Gundogan, recently signed Mahrez and Young star Phil Folden from our Academy? These are pure class and Quality players for that same wing.
We have enough depth and well covered, we will still dominate the league and our beautiful football will be maintained. We are not like our neighbours that will park the bus with or without presence of their key player.
