Manchester City confirm Kevin De Bruyne out until December

  • Man City beat Oxford United 3-0 in the third round

As is the norm, De Bruyne is likely to head for Barcelona for rehabilitation. "We want him", Guardiola told a news conference.

"He is being checked by the doctors", City manager Pep Guardiola said.

Spain Under-21 midfielder Diaz scored his first senior goal for the club after 18 minutes and added his second in the 65th to secure a place in the next round away to Leicester City or Southampton, who play their rescheduled tie on November 27.

It means De Bruyne will certainly miss next weekend's showdown with Manchester United, while he is a doubt to be available to face Premier League title rivals Chelsea on December 8. They know how we want to protect them. The Spain youth global will be out of contract in the summer and according to United Kingdom papers inclusing The Times and Telegraph, Real Madrid would be very interested in taking the player back to Spain. Guardiola admitted that he is aware of Brahim's frustration: "As far as we are concerned, he's a very good player - that's our opinion of him".


He doubled the lead in the 65th by slotting a shot high into the net from close range after Gabriel Jesus' curling effort came back off the post. Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero were among those who didn't make it off the bench.

Having assessed his knee, City's medical staff have revealed the damage is serious enough to keep De Bruyne out for around a month and possibly up to six weeks.

"Today again he was involved with everything offensively and defensively, so hopefully what happened in the last minutes is not serious".
