Bernardo Silva started and scored in the win against Arsenal and the Portugal worldwide could remain a starter in De Bruyne's absence.

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

"Kevin is a great player and it's just unfortunate that it's happened to him in training but there's more than enough depth in the squad", City right-back Kyle Walker said on Wednesday evening.

This could be a massive blow for City, as de Bruyne was crucial for them last season, and without his contribution, it may have been a much tougher test for them to win the title. "Obviously it's a big loss but we've got more than enough cover".
