Manchester City fans take aim at Jesus following humbling defeat

Gabriel Jesus made an instant impact on his arrival to Manchester City from Palmeiras in January last year.

The Brazilian forward scored three goals in his first four outings for the North-West outfit before suffering a metatarsal fracture.

This season, in 31 appearances in all competitions, Jesus has found the back of the net 12 times and has created three assists.

In the 21-year-old’s last three matches, one of which was an international fixture for Brazil, the forward has scored twice.

Throughout the season questions have been raised over whether Jesus should be picked ahead of Sergio Aguero, or if they can play together.

In total, the Brazilian has started 21 games in all competitions, 14 of which have been in the Premier League and six in Europe.

On Wednesday night, Jesus was the main focal point of attack for City in their Champions League quarter-final first leg against Liverpool at Anfield.

However, he failed to make an impact, with The Telegraph claiming that the forward strung just six passes together in the first half, and three of them were kickoffs.

In the end, Pep Guardiola’s side were beaten 3-0 by Liverpool, which means that they have plenty of work to do for the second leg at the Etihad Stadium.

The Reds comfortably dominated the first half as Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane got on the scoresheet.

Trent Alexander-Arnold received special praise from Liverpool fans for keeping Leroy Sane quiet.

The same could not be said for Jesus, who was criticised by City supporters on Twitter.
