Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus could return in two to three weeks after receiving treatment on his knee injury in Spain, manager Pep Guardiola said yesterday.

The 20-year-old, who has scored eight Premier League goals this season, suffered knee ligament damage in the goalless draw with Crystal Palace as City's 18-match winning run came to an end on Dec. 31.It was feared that Jesus could face up to two months on the sidelines but after a treatment session in Barcelona on Thursday, Guardiola is confident Jesus can play a part in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie against Basel on February 13.

"Gabriel was in Barcelona with Dr (Ramon) Cugat and things are quite good," Guardiola told a news conference ahead of Sunday's league clash against Liverpool at Anfield.

"I think in two, three weeks hopefully for the Champions League game against Basel he could be fit." British media reports have linked league leaders City with a January transfer move for Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez. Guardiola, however, refused to discuss the issue and said his focus remains on City's trip to fourth-placed Liverpool.
