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.
Feel Pep underestimated Pool side by leaving out sterling, lost the width in attack that has proven critical all season. No serious goal threat also highlights major impact Aguero has over Jesus up front #LIVMCI #MCFC

Walker Gundogan Sane and Jesus all dropping a 0/10 everybody else with no higher than a 2, which means it’s time for one of those depression naps ???? #MCFC

Sergio Aguero is so much needed and his experience, he plays so much better than Gabriel Jesus ???? Today was a surprise to all City fans but in football anything is POSSIBLE. TRUE CITY FANS WILL ACCEPT THE DEFEAT AND HOPE FOR A BETTER SECOND LEG.#MCFC FOR LIFE❤

Total and utter bottle job @ManCity , Jesus is as much use as a chocolate teapot can't beat a man, can't hold it up and no fight, desperately need another forward in the summer! Started from Pep ("if I change system it will show I'm scared") changing the system! #LIVMCI #mcfc

Pretty much Game over as far as I'm concerned.. Just goes to show how valuable Kun Aguero really is as Jesus is not yet good enough. Roll on Derby Day Saturday when we win the Premier league ? #MCFC
