  • Manchester City are the defending Carabao Cup champions

Kevin De Bruyne will be sidelined for up to six weeks after the Manchester City star suffered knee ligament damage in Thursday's (Nov 1) League Cup win against Fulham.

"We will do absolutely everything to keep him with us", City manager Pep Guardiola said of Diaz, whose contract runs out next year.

Bernardo Silva is set to be the big beneficiary if De Bruyne is ruled out while Fabian Delph will make way for Fernandinho.

"He knows the desire we want for all young players". The doctor said he was sad - today he was less sad and the next day he'll be strong again.

Even though De Bruyne's period of convalescence will include an worldwide break, he is still facing the prospect of missing seven games for his club, including the Manchester derby and a trip to Chelsea.

"We don't know if it's nothing or if it's something serious". "We have a very good opinion of him". "We insist we want him, but it's the agent, him, family, they decide".

Diaz's first goal was fortunate, his shot taking a deflection off Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic and flying past flat-footed goalkeeper Sergio Rico. After several years with City, the player chose to stay with the English club at the start of this season but opportunities have proved few and far between and that could force him to seek playing time elsewhere.

He doubled the lead in the 65th by slotting a shot high into the net from close range after Gabriel Jesus' curling effort came back off the post.

"Today he was involved in offense and defence, hopefully what happened in the last minute 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.
