His withdrawal from the game could be detrimental to Manchester City’s hopes for the FA Cup.

Trailing 1-0 on Thomas Tuchel’s side, City would take advantage of De Bruyne’s talismanic presence.

Manchester City will also sweat over the status of its injury as the club continues their quest for a quadruple.

The Belgium international could now be a doubt for the Carabao Cup final on April 25.

The Citizens had seven games without De Bruyne in January and February due to a hamstring injury and hope to avoid the same possibility.
