Man City's Benjamin Mendy ruptures anterior cruciate ligament

Mendy underwent initial tests in Manchester earlier in the week before travelling to Barcelona for further testing, City confirmed the injury on Thursday but it is not known how long the Frenchman will be out for as he is expected to undergo surgery in Catalonia on Friday.

The emergence of Brazil's Gabriel Jesus last season posed an immediate threat to Aguero's place in the starting team, and Guardiola was not afraid to leave the Argentine, who is on the verge of becoming City's all-time top goalscorer, on the bench on occasion.

Kevin De Bruyne produced something special with this strike to give Manchester City the lead against Shakhtar Donetsk.

Jesus has settled into life in England seamlessly, while England's Raheem Sterling and German Leroy Sane are looking nearly unstoppable on the flanks. The £49million summer signing from Monaco has ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, likely keeping the France worldwide out for most of the season in his first year in English football.

Manchester City have confirmed Benjamin Mendy has ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

The 23-year-old left-back suffered the injury in the first half of the 5-0 Premier League win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The setback leaves City without an out-and-out left-back, and Guardiola has indicated that he could bring in a new signing in the January transfer window. "The City forward was in Holland on his day off and has sustained injuries." .

Despite Guardiola saying City have adequate cover, his squad seems limited in a key position.
