De Bruyne out for a month after suffering knee injury against Fulham

Pep Guardiola's City, now top of the table with 26 points from 10 matches, host Southampton on Monday.

"Kevin was already out two and a half months, and we are sad for him".

His current deal runs out in the summer and Manchester City have been in talks over a new contract with his representatives in order to keep hold of the talented 19-year-old.

Kevin De Bruyne fears his knee injury may rule him out for at least a month, with the Manchester City player waiting on the results of further tests.

Kevin De Bruyne is expected to be out for four to six weeks with a knee injury that he suffered in Manchester City's win over Fulham last night. Yesterday he came back in many things but it is what it is.

Speaking after the 2-0 victory, Pep Guardiola was unclear on the severity of the issues, saying: "He's being checked with the doctors so I don't know right now (how he is). If they get a chance, we've got to take it".

Southampton, who are just two points above the relegation zone, expect to have Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg available as they look to end a run of six games without a win in the Premier League.

"We are delighted to have him with us. We want him but it doesn't depend on us, it is the agent, him, family - they decide".

Which TV channel is City v Southampton on?

"It was a hard situation because of the pitch and the conditions and tough physicality but today again he was involved in the offensive and defensive side, in the pace, in the set pieces, the passes and assists".
