Man City dealt De Bruyne blow

English Premier League

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed Kevin de Bruyne will miss the weekend's clash against Arsenal.

De Bruyne did not take part in Belgium's win over Switzerland this after he came off in the second half against England last weekend.

Not only is the Belgian set to miss Saturday's clash, Guardiola confirmed he will be out for a few games.

"Unfortunately De Bruyne is out, but the rest of the players came back well," Guardiola told a news conference, as per goal.

"I don't think it is [serious], but the next games I think he will be out. We will see."

There was good news on the injury front as Sergio Aguero returned to training.

"He’s trained well and we are happy, we need a striker," Guardiola added. "We played without them but he’s trained three or four days and we are happy to see him back on the pitch after a long time."
