Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says his club will treat Vincent Kompany's latest injury with care.
The Belgian centre-back suffered a head injury in a collision with his own goalkeeper, Claudio Bravo, in the 2-1 win away to Crystal Palace.
He will be assessed ahead of the Champions League group stage tie against Borussia Monchengladbach on Wednesday.
Guardiola, whose side's victory was secured by two goals from Yaya Toure after his first-team exile, said about Kompany: "He had a problem with his head. (He got) a kick.
"Now we're going to control him. You have to be careful with head injuries. Hopefully it won't be anything serious."
The win left City in second place in the Premier League, below leaders Liverpool on goals scored, and Guardiola felt it had been hard-earned against a Palace side who drew level through Connor Wickham.
"It was really tough. Obviously it was not our best performance," he added.
"We were not brilliant, but I'm so proud of my players in the same way I was so proud against Everton and Middlesbrough, when we deserved to win and didn't.
"It was so uncomfortable because Palace are such a tough team and did so well, and we were lucky to win the game in the end and be up again (near the top). We will analyse what we can do better, because there are a lot of things we can do better.
"Now we focus on qualifying in the Champions League."
