Benjamin Mendy ruptures knee ligament, to undergo surgery

Benjamin Mendy ruptures knee ligament, to undergo surgery”

Mendy, signed from Monaco for £52m in June, has been a key figure in City's superb start to the season, with Guardiola's men top of the Premier League ahead of tomorrow's trip to Chelsea.

Last season they made an even more emphatic beginning, winning the first eight games in all competitions including Premier League victories over Sunderland, Stoke City, West Ham, Manchester United and Bournemouth.

French defender Benjamin Mende was injured by a cruciate ligament in the right knee after the player underwent tests.

After initial tests in Manchester, Mendy travelled to Barcelona to see a specialist, where the extent of the damage was confirmed.

Mendy will undergo surgery in Barcelona on Friday. "Mancity.com will bring you regular updates regarding his rehabilitation." the club added.

"I will be joining Injury FC on loan for a couple months with ruptured ACL but will be back soon and stronger hopefully".

There was further bad news for the Citizens as talismanic striker Sergio Aguero "sustained injuries" in a auto crash in the Netherlands and is returning to Britain to be checked ahead of the weekend's Premier League fixtures.

It's early days, but this Premier League season is already shaping up to be one long Manchester derby with United and City locked at the top of the table on 16 points each.

Mendy had featured in five of those victories before being forced off the field after playing just 29 minutes against Palace.

Like Chelsea, City are coming off the back of a successful Champions League tie in midweek where they eased past Shakhtar Donetsk 2-0.
