Gabriel Jesus was one of the three newly-injured players left off Manchester City’s flight to Lyon today, causing some confusion among Blues after he played just 9 minutes against West Ham.
In those 9 minutes, the Brazil forward managed an assist but it turns out he hurt himself in training on Sunday and, along with Ilkay Gundogan and Bernardo Silva, will play no part on Tuesday night.
Thankfully Jesus’ injury is not too serious, with Spanish journalist Jose Alvarez revealing this afternoon that the 21-year-old picked up some ‘adductor problems’ during yesterday’s training session.
Gabriel’s injury won’t keep him out for long and he could even return for the weekend game with Bournemouth, but City will have to do without him at the Groupama Stadium.
Gabriel Jesus doesn't travel to Lyon because he has some adductor problems from Sunday training. Not a heavy injury but it doesn't let him play tomorrow.
