Gabriel Jesus is on his way back and we could see him return to the pitch as early as next week, reports Manchester Evening News.

Jesus has been out of action since New Year’s Eve after suffering medial collateral damage in the draw away to Crystal Palace.

Pep Guardiola was confident of the Brazilian to return for the Champions League clash against FC Basel next month but due to a very speedy recovery, he could make his comeback in City’s FA Cup game against League One outfit Wigan Athletic.

Gabriel is coming back soon, maybe in one week, 10 days, two weeks, he will be ready.

Jesus has scored eight Premier League goals this season prior to his injury, and he will be eager to get back on to the pitch soon to secure, what looks to be City’s third Premier League trophy.

City were also expected to be without Leroy Sane for around seven weeks, but the German winger is recovering well and could be in with a shot of an early return.

Midfielder David Silva is also missing for City after a knock in the draw against Burnley and will miss the game against Leicester today, however, John Stones is fit again and is likely to take part in the evening kick-off.
