Mooney: Bright side of injury blow

City secured Demichelis' services from Atletico Madrid last Sunday as Manuel Pellegrini sought to bolster his defensive options.

But the former Malaga boss has been dealt a blow with the news that Demichelis is set for a spell on the sidelines.

It is reported by the Manchester Evening News that the centre-back suffered a knee ligament injury while training with the club.

Pellegrini is already without captain Vincent Kompany due to a groin problem, although Micah Richards is said to be closing in on a return.
