Ilkay Gundogan was injured in Manchester City's win over Watford on Wednesday.
After walking off gingerly, Gundogan underwent scans that showed he had torn the cruciate ligament in his knee. He was immediately ruled out for the rest of the season.

The Manchester City players were heartbroken that Gundogan had suffered such a terrible injury so in their next match -- against Arsenal on Sunday -- they showed their support for their teammate.
All of the players walked out wearing Gundogan jerseys.
This won't magically make Gundogan healthy or get him back on the pitch anytime soon, but cruciate tears can be tough to return from. It takes a lot of painful rehab and knowing his teammates are behind him could be a nice boost to Gundogan when things get tough.
