Benjamin Mendy to have surgery on ruptured knee ligament

1:59 | Planet Futbol         A look back at Manchester City's dramatic 2012 Premier League title win

Amsterdam police spokesman Frans Zuiderhoek said that officers attended to an accident in the city at around 11pm after "a taxi-cab hit a lamp-post".

Despite the diagnosis, Mendy was able to keep his sense of humour on Twitter, saying he is "joining Injury FC on loan for a couple monthes".

It's not been a good 24 hours for Pep and City! "So now I don't think it's time to think about that".

"No way", Guardiola said about his chances of playing against Chelsea.

He's ready to rival Michy Batshuayi as the Premier League's social media King, and it could be a very interesting season for fans of both players depending on how things shape up.

Mendy has made five appearances in all competitions for City in 2017-18, providing one assist.

"I'm going to have surgery with Jesé Rodriguez! The first impression we have is that he has a broken rib, but exactly how many days he'll be off, I don't know".

From there the 23-year-old has picked up his form week-by-week, but concern grew last Saturday when Mendy was taken off just before the half-hour mark in the eventual 5-0 win over Crystal Palace.

City splashed out £52million to bring Mendy to Manchester from Monaco during the summer.

Fabian Delph, called up to the England squad for next month's World Cup qualifiers against Slovenia and Lithuania, filled in at full-back against Shakhtar on Tuesday and summer signing Danilo is another option.

City released left back Gael Clichy in the summer while Aleksandar Kolarov asked to leave to join Roma.
