However, with the season in its infancy and the transfer window closed, the Champions have now confirmed that their star midfielder is undergoing tests after sustaining an injury to his right knee in training this afternoon.

The Belgium worldwide picked up the injury in a City training session and, although the extent of the damage is still unknown, reports suggest that the injury is a nasty one and that the midfielder will be ruled out of playing football for approximately two months.

De Bruyne damaged ligaments in the same knee in 2016, resulting in him missing 10 weeks.

Despite having a lot strength in depth in the squad, De Bruyne is arguably the club's best player and an extended absence would have an impact on the team.

De Bruyne was also in attendance at the premiere, arriving on crutches.

"We don't just rely on one player".

Manchester City have suffered a major injury blow as playmaker, Kevin De Bruyne sustained a knee injury during Wednesday's training. "Obviously it's a big loss but we've got more than enough cover".

He missed two months of the 2015/16 Premier League season after that injury; City will be hoping that this injury is less serious.

The Belgian was one of, if not the, most important players for Pep Guardiola's Citizens last season as he racked up 12 goals and 21 assists on their way to a 100-point campaign in the Premier League.

A selection of Liverpool fans on social media are thrilled that Man City are set for a spell without their talisman and believe it could boost their own title bid.
