Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne will miss Saturday’s Premier League home game against Arsenal through injury.
The 29-year-old Belgian midfielder was substituted in his country’s Nations League game against England on Sunday.
Belgium coach Roberto Martinez said the move was a “precaution” but City manager Pep Guardiola said he is not available for kick-off.
«I don’t think it is serious, but the next matches I think it will be out. We’ll see, “he said.
De Bruyne returned to City after leaving the Belgian squad ahead of their game against Iceland on Wednesday.
City are 14th in the Premier League table with four points from their first three games.
“I never complain about the international break,” added former Spanish midfielder Guardiola.
“I know how important it is for the players. It is an honor and a privilege. We always want the players to get back in shape, without injuries. Sometimes you can’t control it.
I don’t think it’s big. I don’t know how long, it’s not like Gabriel [Jesús]for example, but a few days and I don’t know how many games it will be out.
