Kevin de Bruyne has been ruled out of Manchester City’s clash with Aston Villa on Wednesday as the Premier League leaders wait to discover the full extent of his foot and ankle injury.

The Belgium playmaker was substituted in the second half of his side’s FA Cup semi-final defeat to Chelsea.

The 29-year-old’s injury is badly timed for City as they try to retain an eight-point lead over second-placed Manchester United, while looking to win the Champions League and League Cup.

On Monday, City said they will continue to assess De Bruyne, but did not put a timeline on his recovery.

In a short statement, the club said: “Manchester City can confirm that Kevin de Bruyne suffered injury to his right foot and ankle in Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea.

“The extent of the problem is not yet known. Kevin will continue to be reviewed but will miss Wednesday’s Premier League trip to Aston Villa. We will bring you further updates on his condition in due course.”

De Bruyne, who joined City back in 2015, recently signed a contract extension at Etihad Stadium and would be a big miss if he is unavailable for the Spurs and PSG clashes.

In reaction to the news shared on Twitter, many Man City fans have been expressing their thoughts and opinions.

Let’s check out some of their reaction…
