High-flying Manchester City have received a setback with the news that striker Valeri Bojinov will be out for at least five months after suffering a knee ligament injury.

The 21-year-old made his first start for top-of-the-table City in the Manchester derby on Sunday but had to be replaced after just six minutes after falling awkwardly and damaging the lateral and anterior cruciate ligaments of his left knee.

Bojinov signed a four-year contract with City on 3 August after leaving Fiorentina for a reported £6m.

Eriksson is now giving serious consideration to bringing in a replacement striker before the end of the transfer window, with Nicolas Anelka of Bolton Wanderers among the players being considered.
