City have not yet indicated how long the player will be sidelined but a two-month lay-off would see him miss the opening Champions League fixtures and a potentially crucial clash against Liverpool on October 7.

City broke several records in 2017-18, including reaching 100 points, winning 32 matches and scoring 106 goals.

City became the first team ever to win 14 successive English top-flight games when they triumphed 2-1 at Old Trafford last December.

"It is a different prospect, cup games are different to a league", De Bruyne told the BBC. "Obviously it's a big loss but we've got more than enough cover".

"You can see he's been working hard, he was even out in Russian Federation so that's how much he loves the game of football".

Before he injury setback yesterday, De Bruyne spoke of maturing as a player and a man at City.

De Bruyne had just returned to training August 6 after helping Belgium to the semifinals of the World Cup in Russian Federation.
