    Except at Anfield this season where they played not to get beat (as did city), I completely agree.

    The time frame they give here makes it just over a month, or pretty much exactly the original estimate (compare thread title).

    Nah, he can finally fulfill his destiny as an ex-Bundesliga player, and come to Bayern.

    This was posted by a City supporting web journo and podcaster soon after the injury. Good call.

    He did with Thiago in 2014. It started similarily and ended with Thiago missing a season...

    City said he'll be out for 3 weeks and yet 3 weeks later he's back in their squad.How very convenient and suspicious.

    It's a bit scary how they haven't really missed him that much...

    He's their best player IMO.

    5 weeks and 2 days he was out, given he got injured against Fulham on Nov 1st. But yeah pretty much the scale City have given anyway.

    They've missed him. They lack a gear of penetration and zip across the pitch with his absence.

    I thought City looked a bit vulnerable today. Then I realised that KDB, Aguero and Sterling weren't then playing.

    A return to form and fitness from this fellow would be huge for City. Second best player in the PL for me.

    Should have won PL player of the year last season IMO.

    Have just seen his goal from the match vs Leicester. He really is something else.

    The bigger picture is he hasn’t started a Premier League game this season, and City are a point off top.

    Exactly

    It has been obvious that in the last few games, with cup games coming thick & fast alongside our league games, especially those when 2 or more of our other midfielders have been injured, the absence of KDB has finally started to catch up with us as we try to rotate the squad. You can only last so long without feeling the impact of arguably your most skilled & effective player being unavailable. Bernardo was playing out if his skin but has gone off the boil a little in the last few games. But as you say, we have still managed to get to this point in the season just off top spot. KDB coming back should provide a huge boost to help us kick on

    Injured again and will most likely miss the Pool game. Cugat's black magic backfiring?

    He played a lot of games last season at a very high level and then went to the WC. Looks like it's all catching up with him.

    Some muscle soreness. Crazy how lucky the dippers are this year. Getting dodgy decisions every game, Pickford/Mahrez howlers in added time, no injuries to main players while City's main players are regularly missing games. It's their year.

    Shit happens.

    To be fair, they are really good now. They needed luck to stay close to City over the first 15 games but right now look like the better team. A City win could change the things again though.

    He's awful when he's not fully fit. Could be a blessing in disguise.

    Think their early LC exit has helped a bit but they will be put to the test if they stay in CL and FAC plus if the injury and suspension Gods turn against them.
    City are capable of putting a long winning streak together to keep the pressure on Liverpool but somehow I just think that Pool will do it this time.

    Like most others he takes a few games to shake off the rust (Aguero is another this applies to) but hardly "awful".
    He sets a high standard and needs some fine tuning to reach it but he did score 2 goals in 3 part games played while being awful.

    It seemed odd that he was running around last season like a man possessed, I just don't think he's built for the high press.

    Seems like they have been rushing him back - especially after a long world cup summer. He'll be alright after a full summer off this year.
