  • Jesus was consoled by City staff as he went off after only 23 minutes at Selhurst Park

When Pep was asked about Alexis after the game, the City boss revealed that there would have to be discussions but that was all he would give away.

The 20-year-old forward left the Selhurst Park pitch in tears after landing awkwardly during the first half and had to be consoled by his club's medical staff.

First of all, Guardiola's squad is beginning to suffer from injuries and the absences of key players.

Sanchez played under City manager, when the duo were at Barcelona.

Guardiola has additionally made mention of the injuries of Gabriel Jesus and De Bruyne, as well as the need for more protection by the referees.

"Not just the best players". "In two days, we have another game (and) after that, we have meetings".


The loss of Jesus could strengthen City's resolve to sign Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez during this month's transfer window, although Guardiola played down the possibility of a move for the Chile worldwide.

With the rumours also saying that wenger would rather cash in on the Chilean, and the gossip that the Arsenal players are also keen to see him out of the dressing room as soon as possible, these injuries could force Pep Guardiola to be a little more proactive in the transfer market.

City have lost their last four league games at Anfield and have not claimed three points away to Liverpool since May 2003, so if any fixture is likely to trip them up and end their unbeaten record, it is that one.

Manchester City ended 2017 with a draw against Crystal Palace, and is starting the New Year with a lot of hopes.

Yet after being so impressive for so long, the draw at Crystal Palace offered proof that City can be stopped.
