De Bruyne injured his left knee in the 2-0 win over Fulham in the Carabao Cup on Thursday, hobbling from the pitch in the 85th minute after defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah had landed heavily on his leg.

The 27-year-old has already missed two months this season after damaging ligaments in his right knee during training in August.

City manager Pep Guardiola said he was confident De Bruyne would be back to his best despite the discouraging development.

Although De Bruyne, whose wife gave birth to their second child on Wednesday, does not require an operation, he will fly to Barcelona to see specialist Dr Ramon Cagut.

Guardiola said the Premier League champions were eager to keep Diaz, but added the decision was in the hands of the Spain youth global.

Secretary-General Antonio Guterres "deplores" the deaths of the three Palestinian children, a spokesman said. Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza have fought three wars since 2008.

"He knows we want him, but after that, it's down to his agent and himself".

With most of City's star players given the night off, one of its brightest young talents took his opportunity to impress in a routine win over an opponent that has now lost five straight games in all competitions and has just one win in 10 games in the Premier League this season.

"We don't know if it's nothing or if it's something serious". The Spain youth global will be out of contract in the summer and according to United Kingdom papers inclusing The Times and Telegraph, Real Madrid would be very interested in taking the player back to Spain. "He knew that in the beginning and he chose to stay". "We have a very good opinion of him".

"Yesterday he came back in many, many things".

"Hopefully what happened in the last minutes is not serious". Their game was postponed this week following the death of Leicester's owner and four other people in a helicopter crash on Saturday.
