Guardiola won't rule out Sanchez move after Jesus injured in Palace stalemate

Share

The Belgium worldwide was initially carried off the pitch on a stretcher with his leg in a brace, but he was soon seen ambling down the touchline with the support of City's medical staff.

Palace earned a penalty in stoppage time when Raheem Sterling brought down Wilfried Zaha but the normally reliable Luka Milivojevic had his spot kick saved by Ederson.

City also had Kevin De Bruyne carried off on a stretcher in the closing stages of the goalless draw, although his injury is not believed to be as serious as the one suffered by Jesus. "We will have internal meetings and see what is for the best [in terms of transfers], but he is an Arsenal player and I think he will be [staying there]".

"In two days, we have another game. But my feeling now is that he's an Arsenal player and he will be".

"Gabriel will be out for a little bit more than one month, hopefully", the Spaniard said. "Then Kevin we were lucky, well not lucky".

Guardiola was asked about speeding up an approach for Alexis, the player they made a late bid for on Transfer Deadline Day but failed. I don't know what will happen in the future.

"We were lucky (with challenges) in previous games. They must protect the players", Guardiola said.

City leads the Premier League by 14 points after 21 of 38 rounds. Maybe Arsene [Wenger, Arsenal manager] is anxious about that, but I say as I've said to him, that run is for him - 2004 is for him. We had problems getting going. But it is December, there are lot of fixtures to play.
