De Bruyne to miss three weeks with Man City - Guardiola

Kevin De Bruyne is likely to be out of action for three weeks, according to Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

The Belgian playmaker suffered a hamstring injury in the weekend's 3-1 win at Swansea City and is currently in Barcelona, alongside captain Vincent Kompany, receiving treatment from Dr Ramon Cugat.

It was initially feared that De Bruyne may miss more time but Guaridola suggests the in-form 25-year-old will only be sidelined j=until just after mid-October.

"Kevin is not a big injury. In two and a half or three weeks, maybe, he will be ready," Guardiola said ahead of Wednesday night's Champions League clash with Celtic.

"Dr Cugat is the best doctor in the world and, with him, we know we are so safe."
