Manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that the Belgian global could be out for as long as six weeks after picking up an injury in their game against Aston Villa.

"I'm not saying anything that anyone doesn't know, it is unfortunate for him and for us and we have to find a solution because everyone in their own life is struggling in the situation we are living and we have to adapt".

"We have to move forward".

A six-week lay-off would potentially rule City's regular captain and talisman out of the club's next eight league matches, including crucial games against Liverpool, Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United, and the first leg of the Champions League last-16 tie against Borussia Monchengladbach in Germany.

City will also be without Kyle Walker for Saturday's FA Cup trip to Cheltenham Town after an impact injury on his hip, although the right back should be available next week.

Google started working on Loon in 2011 and launched the project with a public test in 2013. This follows an announcement that Loon LLC is being globally shut down as a company.

"What we wish is for him [Aguero] is to feel better", Guardiola said.

Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz is of interest to City because they have a buy-back clause on the Brazilian that can be activated this summer. With this amount of competitions, the body says it's enough. He can not play every single game, we have players from the academy. He can play out wide, he can come in the middle, he's got different attributes.

"When we demand five substitutions, it's for this reason".

That's now six league wins in a row for City and yet another clean sheet, yet whilst a number of Guardiola's side impressed, fans also had their eye on one Villa player.

Guardiola said De Bruyne's injury could be a result of a packed schedule. "It's what it is".
