To add to that it was the man who hurt him, Claudio Yacob, who scored Albion's equalising goal before Leroy Sane collected his second goal to settle it. Hal Robson-Kanu should have forced extra-time but struck a post at the death.
Pep Guardiola revealed after the game that Gundogan will have tests on Thursday to determine the extent of his latest set-back, although the Catalan stressed it was not as serious as his previous problem.
But I suffered for Gundogan at that moment, he was on the grass and you can not imagine being eight months out fighting everyday alone with the physio and then to be injured. Unfortunately, the action [tackle] was tough. He will back soon, hopefully.
"We could have scored more goals in the first half as we had enough chances to make the game a bit quieter".
Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has been injured again, according to reports following Manchester City's 2-1 Carabao Cup win over West Brom on Wednesday night. The physio and doctor told me it's not big issue. It was Leroy Sané who finished off a very good team move after Ilkay Gundogan's shot was saved by Ben Foster but came straight to Sané's magical left foot.
However, City restored their lead five minutes later as Sane bagged his second goal of the encounter. You can not imagine what it's like for eight months, every day alone or just with the physio, not in the locker room.
Leroy Sane had put them ahead in the third minute and scored the 77th minute victor to secure their place in the fourth round five minutes after Yacob had equalised.
City is joint top of the Premier League alongside rival Manchester United and hosts bottom club Crystal Palace on Saturday.
