Fabian Delph has dedicated Manchester City's 1-0 win over Chelsea to injured teammate Benjamin Mendy.
Mendy is expected to be out until April, with Delph deputising for the summer signing as the Citizens beat the Premier League champions at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
"That performance was for our teammate, Benjamin," Delph told Sky Sports News.
"He sent us a message before the game and we knew we had to do it for him. That win is for you big man."
Mendy, who joined Man City from Monaco in a £51m deal in the summer, remains in Barcelona after undergoing surgery on his injury.
