De Bruyne in Another Knee Injury Scare
De Bruyne was substituted late on after Fulham’s Timothy Fosu-Mensah fell backwards onto his knee.
The 27-year-old appeared to be in some discomfort and walked gingerly from the pitch. Upon being substituted he seemed to indicate to Guardiola that he had suffered an impact injury, before heading down the tunnel.
De Bruyne missed 10 matches with a knee ligament injury earlier this season, though that was his right knee and on Thursday he appears to have injured his left.
After the match Guardiola told reporters that the club’s medical staff would carry out further tests.
“We do not know if it is nothing or something serious,” he said. “Hopefully what happened in the last minutes is not serious.”
