Man City confirm seriousness of Gabriel Jesus injury as Sergio Aguero plays at Bournemouth

The Brazilian has been in good form so far this season and has been unlucky only to net once.

Jesus’ absence means Sergio Aguero starts for Manchester City this afternoon when they take on Bournemouth with the match kicking off at 2pm.

City confirmed the injury on their Twitter account.

They posted: “@gabrieljesus33 has suffered a hamstring injury in training and will miss today’s game at Bournemouth.

“He will be back to full fitness after the international break.

“Everyone at City wishes Gabriel a speedy recovery.”

David Silva is set to make his 400th appearance for Manchester City this afternoon.

On that achievement, Pep Guardiola said: “He is one of the most incredible intelligent players in the small spaces. He is one of the best I’ve ever known.

“It’s not just the quality, he’s a huge competitor in the training matches. The Premier League is not easy, and he did it. He must be so proud.”

Silva is just the 14th player in City’s history to reach 400 games.

Since arriving in the summer of 2010, just days after becoming a World Cup winner, the Spaniard has enjoyed a glittering career at the Etihad.

He has won four Premier League titles, two FA Cups, four League Cups and two Community Shields.
