Manchester City lost Benjamin Mendy to a serious knee injury, but thankfully Pep Guardiola found a very good replacement in Fabian Delph. In fact, Delph was so good at left-back over the last few weeks that he earned a call-up to the England national team.

Unfortunately, Delph got injured while with England has been sent back to Manchester City, the club announced on Monday.

“Fabian Delph has withdrawn from the England squad through injury. The midfielder has returned to Manchester and will be assessed by the Club’s medical staff. [We] will bring you all the latest on Fabian as we receive more news.”

This is obviously really bad news for City, but it sounds like it’s not a serious problem. We need Delph back as soon as possible, and hopefully he’ll be ready for Napoli after the international break.

Get better soon, Delphie!
