Gabriel Jesus limped off after just 15 minutes at Dean Court on Monday evening with what we now know is a fractured metatarsal and could be out of action for around eight weeks.

What is a fractured metatarsal?

The metatarsal bones are the long bones in your foot that connect your ankle to your toes. They also help you balance when you stand and walk. A sudden blow or severe twist of your foot, or overuse, can cause a break, or acute (sudden) fracture, in one of the bones.

Matches Gabriel may miss

FA Cup – Huddersfield – 18 Feb

UCL – Monaco – 21 Feb

EPL – Sunderland – 5 Mar

EPL – Stoke – 11 Mar

UCL – Monaco – 15 Mar

EPL – Liverpool – 19 Mar

EPL – Arsenal – 1 April

EPL – Chelsea – 5 April

Jesus, depending on his recovery time could be available for the Premier League fixture, at the Etihad against Hull City on Saturday 8 April.

Get well soon Gabriel.
