Manchester City talisman Kevin De Bruyne could be set for a spell on the sidelines according to Manchester based news outlet City Watch.
The Belgian has reportedly suffered a serious injury in training today, with City Watch tweeting out that the 27-year-old's injury is similar to the one he suffered against Everton in 2016, when he hurt his knee in a clash with Ramiro Funes Mori:

De Bruyne featured as a substitute for Man City in his team's 2-0 over Arsenal at the weekend, and the loss of the midfielder would be a huge blow to Pep Guardiola's team as they seek to secure back to back Premier League titles.
