Guardiola unsure if Jesus will return this season

Gabriel Jesus underwent surgery on a broken fifth metatarsal on Thursday night in Barcelona according to reports, and now Manchester City have confirmed the news.

The Brazil global was assessed on Tuesday and City said Gabriel Jesus has "suffered a fractured metatarsal".

Pep Guardiola hopes Gabriel Jesus' injury is not a serious one and doesn't tarnish Man City's move into second place.

City tweeted a picture of Jesus smiling in his hospital bed following the operation, but the forward is likely to face an uphill struggle to return before the final Premier League game of the season against Watford on May 21st.

The severity of the injury was reported by the former Betis and Brazilian national team player Denilson, who spoke to Radio Bandeirantes this morning.

The striker is now expected to miss a run of three crucial Premier League matches against top-four rivals Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea in March and April.
