City’s victory arrived on a near-perfect day for the club, as Gabriel Jesus made his long-awaited return from injury and Vincent Kompany proved he still has the ability to deliver on the big stage, but the injury collected by Fernandinho early in the second-half was a notable problem for the club.

Earlier this afternoon, the club officially confirmed that the Brazilian will miss City’s trip to face Arsenal at The Emirates this week, although no exact time frame has been detailed regarding his return.

In response to the news, the Manchester City fans expressed their delight that his injury does not appear to be too serious, as Manchester Evening News journalist Stuart Brennan even suggested that he could return against Chelsea next Sunday.
