Updating about the injuries to his players, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola on Tuesday night said that forward Gabriel Jesus could miss up to two months with the knee injury he sustained against Crystal Palace. He also informed that Kyle Walker, who appeared to be in discomfort as he left the pitch during City’s match against Watford, would be checked.
Earlier, riding high on Raheem Sterling’s fastest goal of the Premier League season, Manchester City beat Watford 3-1 on Tuesday night.
Meanwhile, Guardiola was quoted by www.mancity.com saying, “Gabriel will be out for between four to six weeks, or a little bit longer, but hopefully as soon as possible. As for Kevin, he told me he wanted to play tonight. He was in pain because it was a kick he received, but if he wants to play, I want him to play. Nothing will change my opinion about his quality, everyone knows about his quality. Kevin wanted to play. Everyone will try to follow his desire.”
Talking about David Silva, the manager said, “We are very happy David Silva is back with us. We don’t know how long he will be with us, but you saw again today he essential player for us. David is free to stay or to leave whenever he needs to. It depends.”
