Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne will not play in the Manchester derby against United following a knee injury he sustained on Thursday.
De Bruyne will be out of action for City after the injury he got in the team’s 2-0 League Cup win over Fulham.
The Belgian has already spent six weeks on the sidelines due to a knee injury.
He will not play a part in the team’s Premier League games with Southampton and West Ham and the Champions League tie against Shakhtar Donetsk.
“He’s being checked with the doctors so I don’t know right now (how he is),” City boss Pep Guardiola said on Thursday.
“I think today Kevin is back, the Kevin we know. He spent a lot of time injured but made a huge effort in Donetsk against Shakhtar and played a few minutes against Spurs in a difficult situation because of the pitch and the physicality.
“Today again he was involved with everything offensively and defensively, so hopefully what happened in the last minutes is not serious.”
