Man City's Ilkay Gundogan watched his own cruciate surgery take place

Watch: Leroy Sané gives Manchester City an early lead against West Brom in the Carabao Cup Pep Guardiola plays down fears over Ilkay Gundogan injury as Leroy Sane secures Manchester City's Carabao Cup progress at West Brom

Manchester City's German midfielder Ilkay Gundogan receives treatment after picking up an injury during the English League Cup third round football match between West Bromwich Albion and Manchester City at The Hawthorns in West Bromwich, central England September 20, 2017.

Has Ilkay Gundogan been a disappointment since joining Manchester City?

Leroy Sane scored on either end of a West Brom goal to lead Manchester City to victory in the Carabao Cup.

In an all-access insight piece for the New York Times, writer Rory Smith details Gundogan's battle to recover from surgery and return from the dreaded injury, sustained against Watford at the Etihad last December.

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".

Those misses nearly cost the Citizens the game as the Baggies equalized in the second half after 71 minutes through Claudio Yacob who tapped in after a corner was not dealt with.

He produced a superb run of around 60 yards that was ended by a sliding challenge from Yacob that left the German in obvious pain in his left knee - the opposite one to that which sidelined him previously.

The problem was diagnosed as a sprain and the 26-year-old could soon be back in action.

It (the Yacob tackle) is from behind, I don't know if he touched the ball but fortunately Gundogan is coming back soon.

"I suffer for him". I didn't see the image. "You can't imagine, for eight months, to be fighting every day alone". Then it was all about rehab and the long road back to fitness for Gundogan.
