Man City midfielder De Bruyne: Bernardo form set up by big preseason

Kyle Walke and Kevin de Bruyne celebrate

Kevin De Bruyne is expected to miss at least eight matches for Manchester City over the coming weeks after suffering a serious knee injury in training.

The club have yet to confirm the injury.

The midfielder is now undergoing tests on his right knee to discover the extend of the injury.

De Bruyne only returned to training last Monday after helping Belgium to the semifinals of the World Cup in Russian Federation.

The 27-year-old is one of the Premier League's star performers and City will be hoping that the injury isn't too serious.

De Bruyne says it's reward for the midfielder's dedication.

Manchester City will be without the playmaker for the foreseeable future but have adequate cover in Ilkay Gundogan and Bernardo Silva.

The Belgian was a key part of City's dominance last season as he registered a league-best 16 assists and added eight goals as Pep Guardiola's men romped to the title. That led to him returning to training later than most of his teammates and he was used as a substitute in the 2-0 win over Arsenal at the weekend.
