Back in the game: Jesus returns to training

Gabriel Jesus has rejoined the Manchester City squad at training for the first time since sustaining a knee injury in December.

The Brazilian damaged his medial collateral ligament during the 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace, but was a welcome sight at the City Football Academy as he steps up his recovery.

Jesus, who scored 10 goals before Christmas, has been training on his own for several weeks and is the latest player to hand Pep Guardiola an injury boost after the return of Phil Foden, Fabian Delph, Leroy Sane, David Silva and

Monday’s FA Cup clash against Wigan will come too soon for our No.33, with the manager admitting no date has been set for his return to action.

However, as we enter both a busy and crucial stage of the season, Guardiola will no doubt relish the prospect of a further attacking threat when Jesus is declared available again.
