Gabriel Jesus continues to delight City fans

Manchester City needed to win today to capitalise on losses for both Arsenal and Liverpool on Saturday. It will be smiles all round then that they managed to snatch a last-minute 2-1 victory against Swansea at the Etihad.

Starting your first home game for a club is always a big occasion and as a striker, it’s something you always want to mark with a goal. Gabriel Jesus must be delighted with his day’s work.

Smashing home in the 11th minute and then giving City victory in the closing moments of the match, Jesus has now directly contributed to five goals in his first three starts for The Citizens.

He had a fantastic game across the 90 minutes, always linking up with his teammates well in the final third, giving Guardiola’s side an incisive edge. If his first few games are anything to go by then he has a very bright future at Man City.

When Gylfi Sigurdsson scored an equaliser, it looked like City would labour to another draw and more dropped points.

But Jesus’ last-minute goal delighted the home support, proving he has the magical touch required to win games on his own for the club.
