De Bruyne sets off alarms ahead of Real Madrid clash: I don't know how long he'll be out

Kevin De Bruyne missed out on Manchester City's clash against Fulham on Sunday through injury after putting in a sublime performance midweek against Arsenal on home soil.

The Belgian playmaker netted twice against Mikel Arteta's side, but he was forced to miss his team's 2-1 win away at Fulham.

"[De Bruyne] doesn't feel good," Pep Guardiola told Sky Sports.

"He has some injury and he couldn't travel. I don't know how long [he will be unavailable]."

Discomfort against Arsenal

De Bruyne was replaced by Julian Alvarez with 10 minutes to go in Man City's crucial duel against Arsenal. Although he was not limping on his way to the bench, Guardiola told the press conference that his player asked to be subbed off after feeling some discomfort.

The Real Madrid clash

There is still more than a week to go for the first leg of the Champions League semi-finals between Real Madrid and Manchester City.

In the meantime, the Sky Blues will host West Ham on Wednesday and Leeds on Saturday in their bid to defeat their Premier League title. It remains to be seen whether De Bruyne will be fit enough to feature in the game at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
