Kevin De Bruyne has been ruled out of Manchester City’s Saturday night Premier League game at home to Arsenal.
De Bruyne had to withdraw from the Belgium squad after he was substituted during the second half of last weekend’s 2-1 loss to England.
City boss Pep Guardiola does not think the injury is too serious but is not sure how long De Bruyne will be absent.
“I don’t think it is much but the next games I think he will be out,” said Guardiola.
“But we will see day by day, how it is going on.
“I cannot answer [exactly how many games De Bruyne will miss] because I do not know.”
There was better news for City fans concerning forward Sergio Aguero, who is closing in on a first appearance of the season after knee surgery.
“He is training well and we are happy,” said Guardiola.
“Every team needs a striker and we have played without them the last two, three games [Gabriel Jesus is also out injured at present].
“He has been training well and we are happy to see him back on the pitch after a long, long time.”
