? Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte is set to be out of action for around five or six months, manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed, with seemingly the best case scenario that the French centre-back could return to action in January.

Laporte was stretchered off in the first half of City’s recent Premier League win over Brighton and subsequently underwent successful surgery.

“Not long, five months, six months, next year...January or February,” was Guardiola’s response.

It had remained unclear quite how long the former Athletic Bilbao star might be sidelined for, but Guardiola put a relatively vague estimate on it when quizzed at his weekly press conference ahead this weekend’s clash with newly promoted Norwich.

Better news is that Leroy Sane is making good progress in his early recovery from a more serious knee injury and is expected by Guardiola to return before the end of the season.

He played 35 of the 38 Premier League games last season, while Vincent Kompany, John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi rotated alongside him.

His absence for the foreseeable future will be a significant blow to City as they look to become only the second club in Premier League history to win three consecutive titles.
