Aymeric Laporte will be out for up to six months, Pep Guardiola has confirmed – but Leroy Sane could be back as early as December following knee ligament injury.

Laporte’s absence is a major blow to Manchester City’s Premier League title defence after undergoing meniscus surgery during the international break.

“He’s here with us, making his rebab - hopefully he comes back well and we’ll see.” On Laporte City’s manager added: “It’s long – five or six months.

City expected the France defender to be out until at least the New Year, but Guardiola revealed his recovery could extend to February.

Ilkay Gundogan has overcome a stomach upset and Benjamin Mendy is close to making his comeback after his latest knee injury.

Guardiola is determined to take precautions over the France left-back, who has endured two injury-ravaged seasons at the Etihad.

Sane had been expected to be side-lined until spring, but there is now hope he could return ahead of schedule.
