    From OS:Aymeric Laporte has undergone surgery on his knee after damaging his cartilage and lateral meniscus during Saturday’s win over Brighton.
    The surgery, carried out by Dr Ramon Cugat in Barcelona, was successful and a more detailed prognosis will be provided in due course.
    Everyone at City wishes Aymeric a full and speedy recovery.

    Meniscus is a lot better than the ACL we feared it could be, cartilage damage on top could be tricky though. Best of luck Eric.

    Given the problems a meniscus and cartilage injury caused Mendy last season, I'd imagine he wont be rushed back in any circumstances. Don't expect to see him back until 2020. Gutted but could have been worse. Speedy recovery Aymeric!

    Still going to be a big loss but considering there's a couple of international breaks during those three months, we're only playing one league game a week at the moment and we've got a fairly easy champions league group, it could've been a lot worse.

    Did we ever get a confirmation on what Mendy was suffering from post his ACL problem, the only thing I saw confirmed was fluid on his knee the then went back to Cugat for treatment and rumours of a second operation

    Speedy recovery, Eric!

    He suffered a recurring meniscus and cartilage injury in the other knee as far as I can remember. Just really shocking luck.
