Manchester City anxiously await news over Aymeric Laporte's knee injury

Manchester City anxiously await news over Aymeric Laporte's knee injury”

"In my opinion, the way he played past year, and how good he actually is, this is the type of injury - if it's as bad as it looks - which shifts the title towards Anfield", Jenas said. "I'm so pleased for the way we played today and the result". We will see exactly what he has, I don't know.

"He is off because he didn't feel good obviously". It's a different position, a different role now, and we'll see.

City have already lost winger Leroy Sane, to a long-term knee problem this season and the club are anxious Laporte has not suffered the same fate.

DF Kyle Walker, 6 - Was given occasional food for thought by the tricky Trossard, but was otherwise untroubled in a relatively quiet afternoon for the former Spurs man.

After Laporte's loss, Guardiola had the consolation of seeing City double their lead before half-time after De Bruyne's square ball found Aguero at the end of a flowing passing move.

MF Kevin De Bruyne, 8 - A slightly scruffy finish for what was his first goal since the FA Cup Final win against Watford in May, and provided the pass for Aguero to make the score 2-0 in what was a welcome return to form.

David Silva was replaced by Bernardo Silva, whose immediate involvement was to ride a challenge and fire into the bottom corner as City strolled to another three points.

"It was a nice game from us", said midfielder Fernandinho, who was pressed into action in defence after Laporte's exit.

Making his first appearance of the season, Fernandinho came on against the Seagulls at centre-back - a role he has occupied before.

"He is a holding midfielder, everyone knows it, me included but I think he has the conditions to play there", said Guardiola. Silva scored 17 seconds after coming on as a second half substitute to wrap up the win and send City into the global break with 10 points from their opening four games.
