Antonio Conte's side have recovered brilliantly after their opening-day defeat to Burnley - and they were only side to beat City home and away last season.

Bad news guys - I'll be joining Injury FC on loan for a couple months with ruptured ACL. but will be back soon & stronger hopefully.

"Mendy will miss the Champions League semifinals (first leg held 24-25 April and the second leg held 1-2 May 2018)", said Guardiola in a press conference ahead of a big-match match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday (30 / / 2017) tomorrow.

Earlier on Thursday night, Aguero posted a picture of himself on Instagram with the Colombian singer/songwriter Maluma. I think our task now is just to support him (Mendy) and just to be there if he needs something from us.

He's ready to rival Michy Batshuayi as the Premier League's social media King, and it could be a very interesting season for fans of both players depending on how things shape up.

"It was an accident".

It's one of several recurring McKinnon characters who exist nearly entirely to make the host lose it. The Golden Globe Award victor hosted the season premiere of " Saturday Night Live " on Saturday.

Mendy then played in the games against Liverpool, Feyenoord, Watford and Palace, with City keeping clean sheets in each one. "The first impression we have is that he has a broken rib, but exactly how many days he'll be off, I don't know".

But now, after hearing that he has ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament, he's maintained his playful online persona and made fun of his strife.

The 23-year-old was signed for £52 million in the off-season from Monaco, but his City career has been interrupted as he faces several months on the sidelines.

The prospect of losing Mendy for the rest of the season severely weakens Guardiola's strategy, as the France worldwide was a key part of his summer squad rebuilding.

It was rotten luck for someone who is looking to stamp his mark on that left back position at the Etihad Stadium following Pep Guardiola's defensive overhaul this summer.
