Manchester City could again be without defender Benjamin Mendy after the French international underwent knee surgery.

City boss Pep Guardiola has confirmed Mendy will be out for 10 to 12 weeks following the surgery.

Mendy missed most of last season after suffering cruciate ligament damage to his right knee during a home match against Crystal Palace, and while this injury doesn't seem as severe, it could still mean the defender will miss another chunk of the season.

Mendy underwent surgery in Barcelona for a problem with the meniscus in his left knee, and had previously tweeted that his other knee had become jealous!

The former Monaco defender has made 12 appearances this season and played the full 90 minutes in City's 3-1 derby victory over Manchester United.

On the bright side, it could see an increase on social media activity from the Frenchman, which kept him occupied and the supporters amused during his time out last season.
