"It is a different prospect, cup games are different to a league", De Bruyne told the BBC.

Sam Lee from Goal has since reported that the Belgian worldwide is already on crutches from the training ground and will be assessed in both Manchester and Barcelona.

The visit comes after the City boss had grilled his returning World Cup stars in the last few weeks ahead of the new season. I am lucky that I like to play the way already that he implemented so it was an easier transition, more natural.

De Bruyne believes that Liverpool, who have strengthened significantly in the transfer window, will lead the challenge to de-throne City, along with the rest of the top six, this season.

It remains to be seen just how serious the 27-year-old's injury is, but Opta data shows he will be sorely missed if he ends up on the sidelines for a significant period of time.

"You can see he's been working hard, he was even out in Russian Federation so that's how much he loves the game of football". "Obviously he's not settling for one title and we're not as well - we want more".

Chelsea's loss has certainly been Man City's gain - hopefully the Premier League gets De Bruyne back fit and firing again soon.
