Guardiola confirmed the Brazil global visited Dr Ramon Cugat in Barcelona on Thursday to be assessed and suggested Jesus could make a remarkable return in time for the club's Champions League last-16 tie against Basel on February 13. He said: "I don't think so".

Former Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling is now Manchester City's top scorer and he may be instrumental when the two teams come face to face on Sunday. Liverpool are also unbeaten at home this season and in the last 22 games against Manchester City in Anfield, the visitors have won just twice.
Asked about his team's poor record at Anfield, the 26-year-old Belgian said: "We don't care about that". But due to road struggles that have seen the club go 3-4-4 away from home, Arsenal sits outside of the top five on the table with 39 points.

Barton however thinks the win City crave will still prove elusive.
That was highlighted by the thumping 5-0 victory over the Reds when these two met at the Etihad earlier this season - a result that sent shockwaves through the rest of the league. Can Liverpool be the first team to beat Manchester City this season? It's worth noting that this game could very well be postponed. Maybe this City side is not so invincible after all.
