Bacary Sagna has been ruled out of ac­tion for three weeks after suf­fer­ing a ham­string in­jury on in­ter­na­tional duty.

The Manch­ester City de­fender pulled his ham­string dur­ing France’s 4-1 vic­tory against Bul­garia last week and is ex­pected to be out of ac­tion un­til Novem­ber at the ear­li­est. Sagna sus­tained the in­jury while giv­ing away a penalty in Les Bleus’ World Cup qual­i­fier and is set to miss some huge games for Pep Guardi­ola’s men.

City face Ever­ton, Barcelona, Manch­ester United, Southamp­ton and West Brom in the next few weeks but will do so with­out the French­man, who has al­ready been trou­bled by in­jury this sea­son. The for­mer Ar­se­nal right back suf­fered a sim­i­lar prob­lem in his side’s 5-0 win over Steaua Bucharest in August.
