Gundogan goes off injured in Manchester City's Carabao Cup match Yahoo7 Sport

Gundogan goes off injured in Manchester City's Carabao Cup match Yahoo7 Sport

Fears that Gundogan had suffered another severe setback were quelled by boss Pep Guardiola, who told reporters after watching Leroy Sane complete a match-winning brace that the injury was "not serious".

Gundogan almost grabbed a goal of his own in the 18th minute.

Claudio Yacob's tackle from behind in the 55th minute saw Gundogan signal to the bench to be substituted.

Gundogan played a role in Leroy Sane's opening goal, taking the initial shot which was blocked by West Brom keeper Ben Foster into the path of the Germany worldwide.

The defender made a crucial block to deflect Gundogan's shot before Foster made a smart save to keep out Eliaquim Mangala's header. And he had an instant impact, playing a major part in Sane's third-minute opener as City continued their hot streak, having scored 15 goals in their previous three games.

With 18 minutes left the Baggies were level when Kieran Gibbs' corner found both Yacob and Evans unmarked in the six-yard box, with the Argentine applying the final touch.

Gabriel Jesus should have doubled the lead on 25 minutes with a chance that he fashioned superbly for himself.

"City got their free-kick, Yacob got booked".

Gundogan will have a scan on his left knee, the opposite one than he injured before, and was clearly in pain when he came off, but Guardiola expects him back soon.

On Thursday morning it was reported Gundogan will "be back soon", although there were no specific details given on how many games he will miss this time.

West Brom were much improved in the second period and, after James Morrison had sent an effort inches wide, Yacob popped up with the equaliser.

Robson-Kanu hit the post in the dying seconds.
