Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne to miss Arsenal clash?

Manchester City will reportedly be without PFA Player of the Year Kevin De Bruyne for Saturday's Premier League clash with Arsenal due to a muscle injury.

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne is reportedly expected to miss Saturday's Premier League clash with Arsenal.

The playmaker was withdrawn with just over 15 minutes left of Belgium's 2-1 defeat to England at Wembley on Saturday after complaining of a muscle problem.

Belgium boss Roberto Martinez initially played down concerns over the injury, but De Bruyne has since been forced to withdraw from the squad for their next Nations League match against Iceland on Wednesday.

The Mirror reports that the reigning PFA Player of the Year will now miss this weekend's showdown with Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium.

The injury is not thought to be serious, but Pep Guardiola is unwilling to take any risks over his star man's fitness in case he aggravates the problem and then needs to spend longer on the sidelines.

De Bruyne, who scored three goals in the two league meetings with Arsenal last season, is expected to be in contention for next week's Champions League opener against Porto.
