Kevin de Bruyne suffers knee injury, could miss several months

Manchester City could be without the services of Kevin De Bruyne for an extended length of time after the Belgian global suffered what could be a serious injury while training.

Although the severity of the injury is not yet known, it is thought that it may be similar to that which the Belgian suffered while playing for City against Everton in January 2016.

It is believe this injury will keep De Bruyne out for two to three months, sidelining him until at least October.

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.

De Bruyne made 52 appearances in a marathon 2017-18 season for City before featuring heavily for Belgium at the World Cup.

His loss will be a major blow to Pep Guardiola after helping City to a record-breaking 100 points last season on the way to the title. He claimed the most assists for a second-successive year although he was beaten by Liverpool's Mohammed Salah to the Player of the Year award.

De Bruyne says it's reward for the midfielder's dedication.
