Manchester City have been dealt a blow after Pep Guardiola revealed that Kevin De Bruyne will be out of action for four to six weeks with a hamstring injury.
Tottenham Hotspur make the trip to the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League on February 13th with Jose Mourinho looking to do the double over the big spending Mancunians.
The North Londoners were comfortable 2-0 winners in the return fixture in November with a goal apiece from Heung-min Son and Giovani Lo Celso.
The 28-year-old suffered the injury during the midweek win against Aston Villa having been forced off after an hour.
PEP 💬 Kyle had a big impact kick in his hips, but just a kick, so is not available tomorrow but we wish he is available for the next game. Kevin, the doctor had to review the scan this morning, and he will be out between four and six weeks.

Bernardo Silva and Phil Foden have both shown in recent weeks that they know where the back of the net is, however the Belgian’s creativity is something which City find hard to replace.
