Kevin De Bruyne fears his knee injury may rule him out for at least a month, with the Manchester City player waiting on the results of further tests.

"He is being checked by the doctors", City manager Pep Guardiola said.

Premier League leaders City host Southampton at 15:00 GMT on Sunday.

Guardiola, though, is fully aware of the Spaniard's talent and says the club will do everything in their power to try and keep him past this season. "Brahim made two goals, We didn't concede too many chances but Aro gave us good security when the ball was there".

"We don't know if it's nothing or if it's something serious".

"Playing in the top teams is not easy for young players, but he (Brahim) showed his qualities again. We'll do everything we can to ensure he stays with us. but he'll be the one to decide". It's the desire of them, so we insist we want him.

Diaz's first goal was fortunate, his shot taking a deflection off Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic and flying past flat-footed goalkeeper Sergio Rico.

"Yesterday he came back in many, many things".

It was the only sour moment on a comfortable night for City as they eased into the quarterfinals of the Carabao Cup.

De Bruyne was given a start, however, and impressed before his injury with his teasing crosses and passes. "But we have to live without him and we have to be there when he comes back, that's all we can do", he told reporters on Friday.

"Today he was involved in offense and defence, hopefully what happened in the last minute is not serious".
