  • Kevin De Bruyne will undergo a scan tomorrow

Manchester City have suffered the first significant setback in their bid to retain the Premier League title after Kevin De Bruyne suffered knee ligament damage that could keep him out for up to three months.

A club statement said the full extent of the injury is not yet known, but the 27-year-old Belgium global was undergoing tests.

Reports emerged earlier today of a potential season-ending injury for the Belgium global, who finished runner-up in last term's PFA Player of the Year voting.

De Bruyne only returned to training last Monday after helping Belgium to the semifinals of the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Although the severity of the injury is not yet known, it is thought that it may be similar to that which the Belgian suffered while playing for City against Everton in January 2016.

The central midfielder helped Pep Guardiola'a side lift the Premier League title and was arguably the standout player last season during a very special year.

The Belgium worldwide who starred in last season's Premier League title win is believed to have torn the lateral collateral ligament in his right knee.

The 27-year-old came on for the final 30 minutes in City's 2-0 win against Arsenal on the opening weekend last Sunday and cut short his holiday in a bid to play against the Gunners.

He may even miss the trip to Liverpool on October 7. And De Bruyne's injury could present an early opportunity for exciting youngster Phil Foden.
