The recently arrived Brazil striker lasted just 14 minutes before going off injured during City's 2-0 win at Bournemouth on Monday, which saw Pep Guardiola's side climb to second in the Premier League table.

City's statement confirmed a "fractured metatarsal" but did not say for how long Jesus would be sidelined, amid fears the forward could miss the rest of the season.

The 19-year-old has made an immediate impact with City, scoring three goals in four Premier League games since his initial £27 million ($33.3 million, 31.2 million euros) move from Palmeiras during last month's transfer window.
