Manchester City confirm Benjamin Mendy has ruptured ligaments

Mendy will undergo surgery on Friday in Barcelona, where he traveled to see a specialist doctor this week, City said on Thursday.

Even before the match against Palace, Mendy had already made more crosses from open play (27) in three league games than Gael Clichy and Aleksandar Kolarov - City's left backs last season - managed in all the 2016-17 campaign.

The official website of Manchester City published an official statement confirming the injury of Mendy by cutting in the cross of the front cross, which confirmed the end of the French defender season early.

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

The France global will undergo surgery on Friday and, although City have not said how long he will be out, players can take up to nine months to recover from such an injury.

Despite his prolific form, City should still have plenty of firepower to cope with Aguero's absence from the injuries sustained in a vehicle accident in Amsterdam on Thursday.

To make matters much worse, on Friday morning, news emerged that Sergio Aguero had been in a auto accident in Holland and had suffered a fractured rib in the collision.

Coach Pep Guardiola had said after Tuesday's Champions League win over Shakhtar Donetsk that he feared Mendy's injury was more serious than thought.

Mendy appeared to take the injury setback in good spirits, tweeting: "Bad news guys???? ll be joining Injury FC on loan for a couple monthes with ruptured ACL... but will be back soon & stronger hopefully".
