Pep Guardiola: “Kevin De Bruyne will be out for about four and six weeks”

Football News

Manchester City, manager Pep Guardiola has reported, will be without powerful midfielder Kevin De Bruyne for about four and six weeks.

This season, De Bruyne, the reigning PFA player of the year, was again in magnificent form for City, scoring three goals and providing 10 assists in the Premier League.

Guardiola’s side is in the league on a six-match winning run, a streak that leaves them well-positioned with a game in hand in the title race – two points behind Manchester United leaders.

But after an hour of Wednesday’s hard-fought 2-0 win over Aston Villa, De Bruyne was forced off and Guardiola outlined the extent of the Belgium international’s hamstring injury, speaking ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup trip to League Two Cheltenham Town.

“Kevin, like the doctor, said today after a scan yesterday, will be between four and six weeks out,” he said.

There was better news for right-back Kyle Walker, who is expected to return after a hit to the hip in the Villa game after the weekend, but predictably eyes fell on De Bruyne, who will now miss a potentially crunchy trip to take on faltering Liverpool champions at Anfield on February 7.
