De Bruyne suffers 'serious' knee injury

Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne is having tests on a right knee injury suffered in training on Wednesday.

The Belgium global who starred in last season's Premier League title win is believed to have torn the lateral collateral ligament in his right knee.

A selection of Liverpool fans on social media are thrilled that Man City are set for a spell without their talisman and believe it could boost their own title bid.

"The extent of the problem is not yet known and we will bring you further updates on Kevin's condition in due course".

But the importance of De Bruyne, easily the club's best player in the record-breaking 2017/18 season, can not be overstated.

De Bruyne only returned to full training last week after a delayed summer break following the World Cup.

Just two new signings in three UEFA Super Cups
Modric has made 257 appearances to date for Real Madrid , scoring 13 goals. But in terms of motivation we never feel beneath anyone.

Sportsmail understands there are fears De Bruyne has torn a lateral ligament in his right knee and City are anxious their playmaker could miss up to three months.

Then, De Bruyne went on to spend more than two months on the sidelines.

City, who began their title defence with a 2-0 victory at Arsenal, next play Huddersfield at home on Sunday.

City are well-stocked in the midfield positions, with Ilkay Gundogan, David and Bernardo Silva as well as the emergence of exciting 17-year old Phil Foden.

Last term, he laid on an incredible 16 assists for his teammates and won the first ever Premier League "Playmaker of the Season" award.
