Clichy will be out for 6-to-7 weeks because of his ankle injury, according to PA Sport

Clichy has yet to play this season due to the ailment, though he was available off the bench last weekend against Everton. Given the situation, Aleksandar Kolarov will continue to start at left back, and given how well he has played, it will be very tough for Clichy to get his starting job back when he returns to fitness.

Clichy has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Watford.

Clichy missed the first two games of the season due to an ankle injury, and while he was available off the bench last weekend against Everton, he apparently either aggravated his issue or came up with something else. Aleksandar Kolarov will continue to start at left back.

Clichy has been ruled out for Manchester City's Premier League opener against West Brom on Monday because of an ankle injury.

Clichy has been dealing with the ailment for some time, though manager Manuel Pellegrini didn't disclose exactly when Clichy was expected back. Aleksandar Kolarov is likely to get the start in Clichy's place, and if the former plays well, the latter may lose his shot at the starting XI when he returns.
