Brazilian sensation Gabriel Jesus is back in the Manchester City camp as he recovers from his foot injury.

The player only joined in January, making an impressive start before he broke a bone in his foot on February 14 when City played Premier League rivals Bournemouth.

The player clocked 20 on Monday, and he returned to trsaining that same day despite fears that he might sit the rest of his debut season out. Jesus scored three goals in four games after he finally resumed following his £27million transfer from Palmeiras. He provided succor as Sergio Aguero was not at his best. He seemed to be the game changer for City this term before the fractured metatarsal incident.

City’s lack of potency upfront is affecting them, and with the only option of Aguero losing chances, they seem to be working towards just maintaining their top four status this season.

In other news, City loanee Patrick Roberts will soon complete his deal with Celtic. He has hinted that he would return to the club after the loan deal lapses. He has been a decent contribution to the Celtic setup – helping the Scottish giant win their 48th title after the 5-0 defeat of Hearts last Sunday.

Roberts hinted at a return to the Etihad but added that he enjoyed his time at Parkhead.

“I have enjoyed my time, I have loved it. We still have a few games to go now and I want to do well. Celtic have been brilliant with me, it is a massive club,” the youngster said.
