Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus suffered a medial collateral ligament injury during the 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace and requires further tests to establish how long he will be out for.

Kevin De Bruyne will be assessed after being forced off in the same match. David Silva remains doubtful, as do Vincent Kompany and Fabian Delph who both missed Matchweek 21.

Watford striker Troy Deeney is still suspended and doubts remain over Miguel Britos (foot), Will Hughes and Kiko Femenia (both thigh).
