Kevin De Bruyne stretchered off after wild Jason Puncheon challenge

De Bruyne left the field via a stretcher after Puncheon lunged in on the playmaker in the final moments of the game at Selhurst Park.

"I don't know (what's going to happen) but he's a player of Arsenal and I think he is going to stay there", he said.

De Bruyne, meanwhile, was hacked down by Jason Puncheon in added time as City looked to break quickly following Luka Milivojevic's late missed penalty for the hosts.

Sanchez has also been linked with a move to PSG in the summer.

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.

Alexis Sanchez and Pep Guardiola could reunite this January.

Under first-year coordinator Todd Downing, the group appeared to take a step back, particularly Carr and receiver Amari Cooper. It doesn't happen often that a head coach breaks his own news, but it happened on Sunday evening.

And after Gabriel Jesus went off injured today, Guardiola was once again asked about signing Sanchez next month. He made his way to the dressing room in tears, consoled by City's medical staff.

Guardiola has voiced unhappiness at some challenges on his players in recent weeks, citing poor tackles from Tottenham's Hotspur's Harry Kane and Dele Alli and another from Newcastle United's Jacob Murphy.

"Kevin, we will see tomorrow what he has; whether it's just a kick or something else".

He said: 'Please, referees, they have to protect players.

'The replay speaks for itself.
