Manchester City's teenage striker Gabriel Jesus could be set for a spell on the sidelines after suffering a foot injury during the 2-0 win at Bournemouth.

The Brazilian had to be replaced by Sergio Aguero in the opening stages of the Premier League clash at the Vitality Stadium.

Raheem Sterling opened the scoring before Cherries defender Tyrone Mings put the ball into his own net in the second half when he was being put under pressure by Aguero.

The result lifts City up to second in the table, eight points behind leaders Chelsea, and they are 4500/1 to win the Premier League title outright.

"On Tuesday morning we will know exactly," Guardiola said after the match. "He was so, so unfortunate.

"Hopefully it is not going to be a big issue."

Meanwhile, Guardiola was impressed with Aguero's display when he came on to replace Jesus, saying of the Argentinian: "He played good, real good. He fought and he scored a goal. His confidence, for us, is so important. I'm so happy for him.

"He was important before the game and is now. It is so important, when you play in a lot of competitions like the Champions League you need all the players."

Manchester City visit Huddersfield Town for an FA Cup fifth round clash on Saturday and can be backed at 15/2 to beat the in-form Terriers 2-1 and at 7/1 to win the match from behind.
