Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus is facing up to two months out with a knee injury.
The Brazilian fell awkwardly in the first half of Sunday’s Premier League clash with Crystal Palace, which saw City’s record-breaking winning run come to an end.

Jesus was in floods of tears as he left the field to be replaced by Sergio Aguero and was consoled by manager Pep Guardiola and City medical staff.
And Guardiola confirmed after the match that the 20-year-old is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines, having suffered suspected ligament damage.
“He will be out for maybe one month or two months.”
City also had Kevin De Bruyne carried off on a stretcher in the closing stages of the goalless draw, although his injury is not believed to be as serious as the one suffered by Jesus.
