Swansea striker Wilfried Bony will be out of action for several weeks after suffering a hamstring injury in Thursday's UEFA Europa League defeat against Valencia.

Bony was forced off late in the first half of the 1-0 loss at the Liberty Stadium after grabbing at the back of his right leg in pain while chasing a long ball.

With Spanish striker Michu also sidelined due to an ankle problem, Bony's injury is a major blow for Swansea boss Michael Laudrup ahead of Sunday's trip to in-form Manchester City.

"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," Laudrup said.

"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."
