Man City confirm Mendy has torn ACL

Mendy's apparent long-term absence from the side will have come as a blow to Guardiola as he prepares his side for Saturday's clash withChelsea, but was hit with another major blow ahead of the trip to the champions as it was confirmed that striker Sergio Agüero was involved in a auto crash.

Steve Nicol assesses how Man City should proceed if Benjamin Mendy misses an extended period of time with a knee injury.

Manchester City held off Shakhtar Donetsk 2-0 to win their second straight game to open Group F.

Manchester City's French worldwide defender Benjamin Mendy faces surgery and several months out after scans showed a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee on Thursday.

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.

Tests have now confirmed he has ruptured anterior cruciate ligaments in his right knee.

The player will undergo surgery in Barcelona on Friday.

The City boss also did not rule out buying a new left-back in the January transfer window after being linked with Southampton's Ryan Bertrand over the summer.

"Bad news guys, I will not join the team a few months ago after I was cut in the front cruciate ligament, but I will be back soon and hopefully stronger", the Frenchman said on his official Twitter site.
