Manchester City will not find out the extent of Kevin De Bruyne's hamstring injury until later this week.

The Belgium international came off nine minutes from the end of City's 3-1 win at Swansea on Saturday which gave them their 10th win in succession since Pep Guardiola became manager.

De Bruyne pulled up clutching his hamstring and was replaced by Jesus Navas for the final stages of the game at the Liberty Stadium.

Sky sources understand the player underwent scans on Sunday but the full prognosis will not be known for a few days.

After Saturday's game, Guardiola said: "From the way he reacted, I think it's a muscular injury but I am not a doctor. I don't know how serious it is so we will travel back and then see what the doctor says.
