Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy suffers ruptured cruciate ligament

Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy faces a long spell out after tests confirmed he has ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

A serious problem was suspected when the France left-back suffered the injury during the first half of last weekend's 5-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

After initial tests in Manchester, Mendy travelled to Barcelona to see a specialist, where the extent of the damage was confirmed.
