Manchester City's title hopes dealt blow as Kevin De Bruyne limps out of Spurs clash

The Belgian appeared to lose his balance when taking a shot from the edge of the area and he booted the ball out of play when play resumed in order to be substituted.
The midfielder was given medical attention on the pitch but he looked distraught as the physio tested his knee.
De Bruyne was able to get to his feet but he headed straight down the tunnel and was replaced by Fernandinho.

Pep Guardiola’s men face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Wednesday, which De Bruyne’s almost certain to miss.
