Pep Guardiola has told the media that Kevin De Bruyne will miss Manchester City's possible season-defining games.
Chatting to the media on Friday before facing lower league dreamers Cheltenham Town on Saturday in the FA Cup fourth round, Guardiola said De Bruyne received devastating news after a scan on his hamstring injury he suffered in the 2-0 win over Fulham midweek.
"Kevin, the doctor had to review the scan this morning, and he will be out between four and six weeks," Pep said via Man City's media.
PEP 💬 Kyle had a big impact kick in his hips, but just a kick, so is not available tomorrow but we wish he is available for the next game. Kevin, the doctor had to review the scan this morning, and he will be out between four and six weeks.— Manchester City (@ManCity) January 22, 2021
In addition to the Walker and De Bruyne updates, Pep also shared the latest on Sergio Aguero.
PEP 💬 What we wish right now is that Sergio feels better. He felt uncomfortable in the first three days after testing positive. He felt quite tired, with all the symptoms you get. Hopefully he can come back. Step by step in training. A long time we have missed our best striker.— Manchester City (@ManCity) January 22, 2021
