Sergio Aguero has had successful surgery in Barcelona after going off with a knee injury against Burnley on Monday.
The Argentine went down inside the box after a challenge from Ben Mee, which saw him twist awkwardly on his way to the floor, eventually winning a penalty for his side.
He managed to walk off the pitch for treatment, but was unable to continue.
Twitter account InjuryMechanisms, a profile which details how an injury occurs and the damage caused, outlined the issue.
"Now confirmed Man City’s Sergio Aguero will have arthroscopic left knee surgery for lateral (external) meniscal tear," the account tweeted.
