Man City says Gabriel Jesus sustained medial ligament damage

Man City says Gabriel Jesus sustained medial ligament damage”

There are now real fears Jesus could face a much longer time on the sidelines than had first been expected by City boss Pep Guardiola.

But Jesus himself revealed on Instagram that he is not likely to require an operation.

The 20-year-old forward was injured in the first half at Selhurst Park and was in tears as he left the pitch.

The club have confirmed in an statement that the Brazilian has suffered medial collateral ligament damage, and will provide an approximate lay-off after further examinations.

'We wish Gabriel a speedy recovery and we will keep you updated on his progress via the Club's official channels'.

Thank God it is not very bad and I won't have to go through any surgery procedure. Promise to be back as soon as possible!

'Thanks for all the fans support and positive thoughts!

The injury is a setback for the Premier League leaders who may now consider making an offer for Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez in the January transfer window rather than waiting until the Chile star is a free agent at the end of the season.

Jesus could be out for at least two to three months, depending on what scans determine in the next few days, City announced late on Monday.

City are 12 points clear at the top of the table before facing mid-table Watford at home on Tuesday.
