Kevin De Bruyne has been ruled out of the upcoming Manchester derby and faces five to six weeks on the sidelines with knee ligament damage.

The Belgium star sustained the injury during Thursday's 2-0 EFL Cup win over Fulham that moved the defending champions into the quarter-finals of the competition.

De Bruyne was hurt when Fulham defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah fell backwards onto his left knee and he could not continue.

The midfielder only recently returned from an extended spell on the sidelines due to an injury to the lateral collateral ligament in his right knee.

It means De Bruyne will certainly miss next weekend's showdown with Manchester United, while he is a doubt to be available to face Premier League title rivals Chelsea on December 8.
