Pep gives Jesus and De Bruyne injury update

He made his way to the dressing room in tears, consoled by City's medical staff.

It proved to be a frustrating day for City, though it could have been a lot worse when Luka Milivojevic stepped up to take a penalty after Raheem Sterling was adjudged to have fouled Wilfried Zaha in the box.

Both players left the pitch on stretchers, and things looked bleak with the 26-year-old's leg put in a brace - but thankfully pictures emerged after the final whistle of De Bruyne walking with support, and BT anchor Jake Humphrey informed viewers that he told commentator Ian Darke that he was "OK".

Afterwards Pep Guardiola said: "Gabriel Jesus is injured, he will be out for maybe one month or two months".

"In the internal meetings we are going to decide what is best".

"But my feeling now is Alexis is an Arsenal player".

"We were lucky against Tottenham, with Kevin, we were lucky against Newcastle, (with Ilkay) Gundogan; today we will see what happens".

Although the draw with Palace ended City's Premier League winning run at 18 matches, they remain unbeaten in the top flight this season.

"We were lucky (with challenges) in previous games". We have to protect players'. Maybe Arsene [Wenger, Arsenal manager] is anxious about that, but I say as I've said to him, that run is for him - 2004 is for him.

I admire him. He's had a long career and I respect that, just as I respect Gareth Barry for all those games he's played in the Premier League.

We will bring you more information on Gabriel and Kevin as we get it right here on mancity.com in the coming days.
