Manuel Pellegrini fears serious Kevin De Bruyne injury

Man City manager Manuel Pellegrini admits that the injury sustained by Kevin De Bruyne in the closing stages of the League Cup semi-final with Everton does not look good.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has admitted that the injury suffered by Kevin De Bruyne in the second leg of their League Cup semi-final with Everton does not look good.

De Bruyne came off the bench to make a match-winning impact at the Etihad Stadium this evening, scoring one goal and creating another to help City reach the final.

However, the Belgian was stretchered off in stoppage time with what looked like a serious knee injury, and Pellegrini suspects that it could be ligament damage.

"It is difficult to know. He is with the doctor, it could be the medial ligament. Tomorrow we will have more news but it is not a nice injury," the Chilean told Sky Sports News.

City were forced to see out the closing stages with 10 men to set up a Wembley showdown with Liverpool next month.
