Man City's De Bruyne injured in FA Cup semi-final defeat
Kevin de Bruyne gave Manchester City cause for concern as he had to be substituted against Chelsea on Saturday, as their quadruple chances disappear.
Manchester City talisman Kevin De Bruyne was substituted shortly after half-time in Saturday's FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea with an apparent ankle complaint.
City lose to Chelsea...and De Bruyne
De Bruyne, keeping his place from the midweek Champions League win at Borussia Dortmund despite eight City changes, appeared to tweak his ankle in a tussle with N'Golo Kante.
The midfielder was quickly replaced by Phil Foden, the match-winner in Germany, as City took no risks ahead of a key stretch in the season.
Pep Guardiola's side were still chasing silverware on four fronts, bidding to reach the FA Cup final ahead of next week's EFL Cup showpiece against Tottenham. But a goal from Ziyech after a lovely Werner assist on the break, was enough for The Blues to secure their safe passage.
They are in pole position for the Premier League and into the last four of the Champions League where they will play PSG.
After the match, Guardiola was asked about his condition.
"He has pain. Tomorrow they are going to test, but they tell me it doesn't look good."
Only Thomas Muller (18) has more assists than De Bruyne (16) in all competitions this season among all players in Europe's 'top five' leagues.
He ranks fifth for chances created (101) and has also scored eight times. Time will tell if he is to miss many games.
