Manchester City hopeful Kevin De Bruyne could return within two months

Manchester City have confirmed that Kevin De Bruyne has suffered a lateral collateral ligament lesion in his right knee and will be out for around three months.

Riyad Mahrez, Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling played behind Sergio Aguero as De Bruyne came on as a 60th-minute substitute during the defending Premier League champions' 2-0 win at Arsenal last weekend.

The 28-year-old midfielder was heard saying: "F****** shi't man, f**** sake".

"This can happen because you build an unbelievable stadium for Tottenham Hotspur - sometimes there are delays, this kind of thing happens".

The Belgium worldwide topped the division's assist chart last season, created more chances than anyone else and scored eight times as City won the title by a 19-point margin. "In the end if Tottenham want to suggest something they'll speak with our CEO, and our people and the best for the Premier League, and we are going to decide".

"We don't just rely on one player".

"Nobody knows, but I'm pretty sure this can influence it".

"He will be a big miss. If you're fresh, with normal vacations, then that doesn't happen".

And so the reigning champions will feel they should get three points when they host Huddersfield on Sunday and even build up a run of wins as games against Wolves, Newcastle, Fulham, Cardiff and Brighton follow.

Kevin De Bruyne's knee injury is a major disappointment.

"Kevin needs to rest and get the holiday that he didn't get over the summer".

The midfielder won the 2010 World Cup, as well as the 2008 and 2012 European Championships, before announcing his worldwide retirement earlier this week.

Indeed, it might make the title race a little more interesting.

City had the chance to claim the Premier League title against their cross-town rivals United in April.
