  • Kevin De Bruyne Manchester City 2018-19

Kevin De Bruyne has suffered an injury in training on Wednesday, with reports suggesting that the Manchester City playmaker could miss at least two months of action.

City said the extent of the injury suffered by the 27-year-old Belgium midfielder is "not yet known".

De Bruyne arrived on crutches on Wednesday evening at the premiere in Manchester of Amazon's "All or Nothing" documentary about the club.

"So I hope this one will be similar, especially in terms of the way we play and in terms of winning". It's a team game and whoever steps in will do well.

On behind the scenes documentary All or Nothing, De Bruyne said: "I was only 20 years old when I chose to sign for Chelsea, and I got my chances in the first few games and I thought, okay, things are going well, I play okay, we won the games".

De Bruyne only returned to full training last week after a delayed summer break following the World Cup.

In 2016, he missed 12 games after injuring his right knee during an EFL Cup semi-final victory over Everton.

Betfair Exchange have revealed that City's title rivals Liverpool, who were previously trading at 5.0 to win the Premier League for the first time, have now edged closer towards 4.3.

City face Huddersfield at home on Sunday.
