Kevin De Bruyne suffers knee injury

The Belgian midfielder is understood to have sustained a knee injury during training on Wednesday and could be out of action for anywhere between two and three months.

Despite having a lot strength in depth in the squad, De Bruyne is arguably the club's best player and an extended absence would have an impact on the team. The Terriers were matched at a record high of [44.0] but were backed into [30.0] as the De Bruyne news broke on Twitter.

The worst case scenario for De Bruyne would be a cruciate ligament injury - the same injury suffered by Liverpool's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - which, at the very least, requires a nine month recovery period.

Trump calls ex-'Apprentice' star turned White House aide a 'dog'
The source claimed: "Melania is exhausted of being quiet and hiding inside the White House ". Critics condemned Trump's tweet for what they said were racial and sexist undertones.

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Premier League champions Manchester City began their 2018/19 campaign with a 2-0 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates in a Super Sunday match.

De Bruyne is thought to have sustained ligament damage, nearly certainly ruling him out for at least a couple of months, but City will wait until further tests have been carried out before confirming the news.

Manchester City will be without the playmaker for the foreseeable future but have adequate cover in Ilkay Gundogan, David Silva and Bernardo Silva.
