Belgian midfielder, Kevin De Bruyne is out of the Manchester City vs Arsenal clash in the EPL on Saturday as Pep Guardiola confirmed in the build-up to the game.
AllNews understands that De Bruyne is set to miss the few next games for Manchester City including the Champions League match, but Sergio Aguero is in contention to face Arsenal on Saturday.

"Unfortunately De Bruyne is out, but the rest of the players came back well," Guardiola told a news conference. "I don't think it is [serious], but the next games I think he will be out. We will see."
Guardiola also commented on Mikel Arteta's impact at the Emirate Stadium, when he said, "He was able to get Arsenal back in the position they were in a while ago. They are a team like Mikel, a competitor, and a fighter. We are more than happy with what he is doing in London."
