Aymeric Laporte hands Man City injury boost

Aymeric Laporte is confident being back in action for Manchester City next month.

Laporte suffered a serious knee injury in the convincing 4-0 victory over Brighton near the beginning of the season, and Pep Guardiola's side have struggled in his absence ever since.

He has issued an update on his knee injury, telling the National: "[My recovery] is going very well.

"Still I need time but I hope as soon as possible I can come back and play with my teammates.

"I can't say when exactly but more or less one month-and-a-half to two months."
