Some Liverpool fans on Twitter have responded to reported news of an injury to Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne.

De Bruyne came on as a late substitute as City beat Arsenal 2-0 on the opening day of the Premier League season.

City confirmed after training on Wednesday that De Bruyne had sustained an injury during the session and that he would be sent for further tests.

Ger Loughnane, John Meyler and Karl O'Kane join David Coughlan and John O'Dowd for a preview of this year's hurling final between Limerick and Galway in Episode 40 of The Buzz Sports Show. Even though Pep Guardiola has more squad depth than most, the midfielder's creative input was missed, which is probably why he was sent on for the last half hour.

The Belgium worldwide enjoyed a brilliant campaign last season, scoring eight goals and setting up another 16 as City romped to Premier League success.

Having managed some of the greatest players to ever step foot on a pitch, Guardiola is eager to make it something of a level playing field for his dressing room at Manchester City.

"So I hope this one will be similar, especially in terms of the way we play and in terms of winning". Sources close to De Bruyne are hopeful that he could return earlier than expected eight or nine weeks. "It is a big title to win but in the Champions League you don't need to have the consistency that you need in the league", he told BBC Sport. The other teams are always going to push us, Liverpool did what we did previous year.

De Bruyne was also in attendance at the premiere, arriving on crutches.

"In the beginning it was a bit weird as you don't know the people you are working with but then after time you forget they are there".
