Guardiola handed significant fitness boost as Man City enter crucial period in the season

The Man City fans in the Transfer Tavern have missed Gabriel Jesus over the last few weeks. Whilst Sergio Aguero has been in stunning form in 2018, Jesus has been particularly impressive since moving to the Etihad.

The Brazilian has yet to play this year, having made his last appearance back in December, but according to Guardiola, a return is on the horizon.

Guardiola has revealed, via Goal¬†journalist Sam Lee, that Jesus will return to training with the first team today, having sufficiently recovered. He’s not yet ready to return to action, but it seems logical that it won’t be too long until that is the case.

This is a big boost for the Citizens, especially given the significance of the next few weeks and months for Man City. In the Premier League, they can effectively secure the title with another few weeks of good form, whilst the return of the Champions League will demand as many bodies as possible.

Not to mention, Jesus has been in stunning goalscoring form this season when available, having bagged 8 goals in 12 Premier League starts.

Landlord’s Verdict

This is great news for Man City. Whilst Aguero is a great player, he can’t hold the fort alone, particularly with games coming so often over the next few weeks and months.

You’d expect that Jesus will be available to play at some point in the next few weeks, barring any setbacks, and so that should line up quite nicely with Man City’s fixture list.
