De Bruyne set for three months on the sidelines

Southampton would have made a profit in 2016-17 even if they played in front of an empty St Mary's throughout the season

Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne will be out for three months because of a knee injury.

'Everyone at City wishes him a speedy return to action'.

Guardiola expects De Bruyne to be fit again by the beginning of December, but acknowledges City will have a tough task dealing with his absence, just as they did when a knee injury ruled out left-back Benjamin Mendy for virtually the whole of last season.

"We'll never know, but my opinion is that we demanded a lot of the players".

"I'm pretty sure this can influence it". When you are fresh here, fresh on your legs, it doesn't happen.

"No surgery is required, and the midfielder is expected to be out for around three months".

"He will be a big miss".

Do you think United can get anywhere close to United this season? They lost the home game however, and Guardiola was keen to point out the difference in belief between his side and the likes of eventual winners Real Madrid. It's a tough season, with short recovery times. "In the end if Tottenham want to suggest something they'll speak with our CEO, and our people and the best for the Premier League, and we are going to decide". But human beings have a limit.

Mourinho: Wait to see if Man Utd can contend
United starts the season just like it started the match: perfectly. "For me it's the first one and that's the most important". It's the last time I speak about it.

Kevin De Bruyne's knee injury is a major disappointment.

"I'm glad for him".

Guardiola finishes: "Football is not flowers, a good holiday and say everything is easy".

He played 125 times for Spain, scoring 35 goals. The player has to feel it.

Indeed, it might make the title race a little more interesting.

After wildly successful spells at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, his first season in England with Manchester City didn't go to plan, with the Cityzens finishing third in the Premier League table.

The Spanish boss said: "The only thing I can say (is) the last five games, four are away and that's a problem if we are playing for the Premier League".
