Swansea striker Wilfried Bony will be sidelined for "several weeks" after suffering a hamstring injury in the Europa League defeat to Valencia.

Bony limped off just before half-time in the 1-0 Group A loss, having pulled up clutching the back of his right leg chasing a long ball.

With Michu also currently sidelined, due to an ankle problem, the injury comes at a less than ideal time with a daunting trip to Manchester City lying ahead for Michael Laudrup's men on Sunday.

The Swansea boss said: "It could be quite a serious one. We'll have to wait two or three days until we get a scan but unfortunately we are talking several weeks.

"It is a blow but that's how it is. You have to accept it and when you have a lot of games this is a possibility.

"Let's see what happens with Michu in the next week or so."

Swansea also lost right-back Angel Rangel with a calf problem, but Laudrup does not believe his injury is as serious as Bony's.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
