Manchester City have received a big injury boost as tests today have shown that Ilkay Gundogan’s injury is not as serious as first thought.
In fact, reports suggest that the injury is ‘nowhere near’ as serious as it looked last night as the player had to be subbed against West Brom.
The player was returning to action for the first time in the Carabao Cup tie but it was a massive blow when he went down with another injury.
Many fans were within their rights to be worried about another potential blow for the player who had worked so hard to come back from an 11-month layoff.
Though, Manchester City fans can be happy with the information that the player will not be out for as long as what was first speculated.
Manchester City have now even confirmed that scans have indicated that he will not be out for that long.
The player signed in a big money dea from Borussia Dortmund lst season when Pep Guardiola took over in Manchester.
Having managed Bayern Munich for his previous role, Guardiola knew plenty about their rivals and one player that clearly caught his eye was Gundogan.
Now, he will be hoping that the German midfielder can kick on after his injury setback and help Manchester City with their already impressive form.

Man City to be investigated by FIFA
Manchester City could well be set for a transfer ban.
The Cityzens are under investigation by FIFA and could well be hit with some sanctions.
Chelsea are also a club being investigated at the same time and both are facing some serious problems.
