The German international had been on the sidelines with a serious knee injury since December last year and only just made his first senior appearance for City as a substitute against Watford on Saturday, before turning out against West Brom last night.
Gündoğan was given the nod to start the Carabao Cup tie at the Baggies but he lasted less than an hour, after a tough tackle from behind by Argentine Yacob.
Yacob was only shown a yellow card for his part in the incident, and as we told you last night, the prospect of seeing their likeable midfielder go through another agonising spell on the sidelines had fans rather upset.
But they needn’t be, because the man himself has taken to Twitter to confirm he’s alright, and could even be fit for the upcoming match against Chelsea:
Hi all, thank you for all your messages! I'm happy to tell you my injury is nothing serious and I hope to be back soon on the pitch!?? #MCFC

All’s well that ends well, eh?
We’re not Man City fans, but it’s definitely nice to see Gündoğan is alright!
