Manchester City were dealt a blow as German midfielder Ilkay Gundogan sustained a knee injury that manager Pep Guardiola fears will sideline him for "several months".
Pep Guardiola expects Manchester City to be without Ilkay Guendogan for a "long time" after the German midfielder suffered a suspected knee ligament injury in Wednesday's 2-0 Premier League win over Watford.
Gundogan, who joined City from Borussia Dortmund in the summer, has been a consistent member of the first-team after recovering from a dislocated knee, but has now aggravated the same injury.
He unsuccessfully tried to play on after sustaining the injury in an awkward fall and left the field in clear distress shortly before the interval.
"Yaya is an exceptional player and if he plays as he did today we are very happy for him - he can play as a defensive midfielder or further forward and he did very well this evening", said Guardiola.

The wedding ceremony took place in Los Angeles last week and the actress looked extremely handsome in traditional attire. The bride stunned in a pink and golden lehenga, and the groom looked dapper in cream and golden kurta with red turban.
"I'm so sad for Ilkay Gundogan as it looks like we'll be without him for a long time".
"It is of course the worst news of the day". However, Pablo Zabaleta scored his first goal for almost two years, before David Silva added a late second to get Guardiola's team back on track following a hard few weeks. "I think the players are going to be more confident", he said when reminded that this was Manchester City's first home win in the Premier League since September 17 when Bournemouth had been beaten 4-0. Raheem Sterling hit the bar early in the second half but City did not kill off the game until David Silva claimed their second four minutes from time.
Redknapp thinks Guardiola's results and tactical decisions would have come in for much fiercer criticism if he hadn't arrived at City with such a top reputation. It was their first win in four games, only their fifth in 16 in all competitions and their first at home in the league in nearly three months. Their clean sheet was also the first they had registered in nine attempts.
He told the club website: "We are happy with the result, it was important to win this game against a well-organised Watford side".
