"Manchester City FC can confirm that Benjamin Mendy has ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee", the club said in a statement.

City medical staff say Aguero will be absent for between two to four weeks with a broken rib suffered when a taxi the Argentinian star was travelling in - after attending a concert on his day off - crashed in Amsterdam on Thursday.

Mendy travelled to Barcelona this week to see a specialist regarding his injury, and will now go under the knife on Friday - facing months on the sidelines.

The French left back came off in the first half of City's 5-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace last weekend, and after initial scans left Pep Guardiola feeling optimistic over the scare (the Spaniard claimed that Mendy would only be out for a few days), the defender's season could well be over already.

Mendy cost City £49.2 million in July. Right now I'm not anxious about that.

"There is the global break (after this weekend)", the Italian added.

The victory over the winless 49ers came with multiple defensive and special teams miscues that created the thrill-a-minute drama. But their victories - and 87 of their 107 points - came against the lowly Indianapolis Colts and the San Francisco 49ers .

"Of course the club is working in those terms, but we'll see".

"I think we are a bit penalised", said Conte.

To make matters worse for Pep Guardiola and City, star striker Sergio Aguero has reportedly been involved in a auto crash after attending a concert in Holland.

Guardiola also revealed that captain Vincent Kompany is out despite being called up by Belgium for their World Cup qualifiers.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is unhappy that, while City played at home on Tuesday, his side have a short turnaround after arriving back in London in the early hours of Thursday morning following their success in the Spanish capital.

"I spoke with Roberto Martinez, he told me he's travelling there for a meeting with the Belgium doctors but he's coming back".
