Man City Reveal Gabriel Jesus Has Suffered MCL Injury

Manchester City have given an injury update on Gabriel Jesus.
The Brazilian striker was taken off in tears after 23 minutes of a goalless draw in the English Premier League game at Crystal Palace.
And the English club said in a statement on Monday: "Manchester City can confirm Gabriel Jesus suffered a medial collateral ligament injury during the 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace on Sunday.

"He will undergo further examinations in the coming days to establish the extent of his lay-off. 

"We wish Gabriel a speedy recovery and we will keep you updated on his progress via the club's official channels."
But Jesus himself revealed on Instagram that he is not likely to require an operation. He also wrote on Monday night:

"Today I went through an image exam on my left knee that diagnosed a small medial collateral ligament injury. 

 "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 support and positive thoughts, happy new year! "2018 is going to be my year!"
Mild MCL injuries generally heal within three to six weeks but more severe injuries can sideline players for up to 12 weeks.
