De Bruyne out for six weeks with latest knee injury

As is the norm, De Bruyne is likely to head for Barcelona for rehabilitation.

The Catalan coach added: "Kevin is out and we are sad for him, nobody likes to have injured players but he will come back to the player he is and he will be fine".

"We will do absolutely everything to keep him with us", City manager Pep Guardiola said of Diaz, whose contract runs out next year.

The 27-year-old Belgium global had looked back to his imperious best against the Cottagers, in what was his first start since injuring the ligaments in his left knee in August. Asked if he was anxious about the injury, Guardiola said, "I don't know right now".

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. But his agent, and him, finally decides. He knew that at the start of the season and wanted to stay. "They know how we tried to help them in the particular way we want to play".

Its newest mobile title Dragalia Lost was released on September 27, resulting in minimal contribution to the quarter. Nintendo didn't change its full-year outlook for operating profit, revenue, and Switch hardware and software sales.

Diaz's first goal was fortunate, his shot taking a deflection off Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic and flying past flat-footed goalkeeper Sergio Rico.

With the cup game squeezed in between two Premier League fixtures in a six-day span, Guardiola took the opportunity to play many of his fringe players.

Manchester City have confirmed the news after De Bruyne was substituted during the club's Carabao Cup victory over Fulham, when Cottagers defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah fell backwards onto the Belgian, who was sat on the pitch with his legs stretched out in front of him.

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