Kevin, we will see tomorrow, if it is a kick or something else. "Protect all the players please from situations that are unsafe".
Belgium global De Bruyne, who has been instrumental to City's success this season, suffered the injury after a collision with Palace's Jason Puncheon in stoppage time at Selhurst Park and left the pitch on a stretcher, with his right leg in a brace.
Guardiola was asked about speeding up an approach for Alexis, the player they made a late bid for on Transfer Deadline Day but failed.
Immediately after the save, City broke away and Jason Puncheon cynically scythed down De Bruyne, injuring the Belgian and himself in the process. Referees have to protect. Today we were not lucky.

The draw brought City's 18-game winning streak to an end, but Ederson's stoppage-time penalty save to deny Luka Milivojevic did preserve City's unbeaten Premier League run this season, which now stands at 21 games.

The extent of the injuries has yet to be determined but with the Premier League leaders having a clash with Watford in two days' time, manager Pep Guardiola will certainly be hoping for good news after both players undergo tests. "But now Alexis is an Arsenal player".
