  • Gabriel Jesus scored in his first two league starts for Manchester City

Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus broke a metatarsal in Monday's 2-0 Premier League win at Bournemouth.

The 19-year-old was taken off in the 15th minute at Vitality Stadium after appearing to pick up the foot injury.

City said in a statement: "He will undergo further examinations in the coming days to establish the extent of his layoff."

The Brazil international, who completed a £27m from Palmeiras in January, has played five times for City.

Jesus was hoping to become the third City player to find the net on each of his first three Premier League starts, having scored at West Ham and two against Swansea.

The other two players to have achieved that feat are former striker Emmanuel Adebayor and current midfielder Kevin de Bruyne.
