02 October 2017

Manchester City have confirmed that defender Benjamin Mendy has ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

Bad news guys - I'll be joining Injury FC on loan for a couple months with ruptured ACL. but will be back soon & stronger hopefully. I think our task now is just to support him (Mendy) and just to be there if he needs something from us.

"No way", Guardiola said about his chances of playing against Chelsea.

The Manchester City full-back noted an uncanny likeness between the chap wheeling his to theatre and Stoke star Jese Rodriguez.

"I don't know, we will wait until Thursday, but I am pretty sure it will be longer than we would like, unfortunately".

The Frenchman, who was beginning to show signs of promise in the English top flight, was injured in the first half of City's 5-0 demolition of Crystal Palace last weekend.

After tests in Manchester at the start of the week, the 23-year-old travelled to Spain to see a specialist doctor and further examinations of the knee on Thursday confirmed the extent of the injury.

Having joined the Citizens from Ligue 1 champions Monaco in the summer, Mendy has made a huge impression in England both on and off the pitch.

It was rotten luck for someone who is looking to stamp his mark on that left back position at the Etihad Stadium following Pep Guardiola's defensive overhaul this summer.

Midfielder Fabian Delph filled in at left-back during the 2-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday and Danilo can also play there.
