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.
