The Belgian was later seen hobbling without the brace and Guardiola believes De Bruyne has escaped a potentially serious injury, but he feels Jesus might be facing a couple of months out.

City were looking to catch Crystal Palace on the break late on in Sunday's 0-0 draw, with Ederson saving a Luka Milivojevic penalty just a few moments earlier.

Belgium global De Bruyne, who has been instrumental to City's success this season, suffered the injury after a foul by Palace's Jason Puncheon in stoppage time at Selhurst Park and left the pitch on a stretcher, with his right leg in a brace.

"In the internal meetings we are going to decide what is best".

"I don't know (what's going to happen) but he's a player of Arsenal and I think he is going to stay there", Guardiola added. "But my feeling now is that he's an Arsenal player and he will be".

Afterwards Pep Guardiola said: "Gabriel Jesus is injured, he will be out for maybe one month or two months".

"We were lucky against Tottenham, with Kevin, we were lucky against Newcastle, (with Ilkay) Gundogan; today we will see what happens".

"We were lucky (with challenges) in previous games".

Not since August 21 had Manchester City dropped any points. "They must protect the players", Guardiola said. "Referees have to protect the players, that is all I ask". "We are in December, there are lots of games to play".
