Pep Guardiola provides update on Ilkay Gundogan's latest setback

Benjamin Mendy and Danilo laugh together during Manchester City's training session

MAN City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has described in graphic detail the 276-day physical and psychological torture of a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ALC) injury, writes Tony Leen. The Daily Mail reports that Ilkay is hoping to return in just a week and is targeting the Chelsea fixtures for his comeback.

Manchester City forward Leroy Sane was pleased to give Pep Guardiola a timely reminder of his talents with a match-winning display in the 2-1 EFL Cup victory at West Brom.

Claudio Jacob's second-half equaliser briefly threatened to take the tie into extra time and make a mockery of City's dominance after they nearly ran riot in the first half.

The German midfielder was making his first start since December after recovering from a major knee ligament injury.

Gundogan - who underwent tests at the City Football Academy on Thursday - had spent most of this year nursing his right knee back to health and Yacob's challenge hurt his left instead.




But I suffered for Gundogan at that moment, he was on the grass and you can not imagine being eight months out fighting everyday alone with the physio and then to be injured. Unfortunately the action is tough. "He will be back soon hopefully", Guardiola said.

"I suffered for Gundogan, when he was on the grass, in that moment".

Yacob was booked for the tackle.

On the hour-mark, Sterling tested Foster again from the edge of the area only to see his shot stopped by the goalkeeper's feet. It's from behind but I don't know if he touched the ball or not.

Sane has been restricted to a solitary Premier League start this season, with that coming in the unfamiliar position of wing-back against Everton. I didn't see the image.
