Manchester City fans already have a chant for Gabriel Jesus, but it's not really creative

We can do better, guys! It's Jesus!

Manchester City fans are super excited about the arrival of Gabriel Jesus. He's played a total of 100 minutes since his debut, and he's already a fan favorite. A beautiful assist to Raheem Sterling was the icing on the cake of a great first start for the young Brazilian, and there's no stopping to this kid.

It took Pep Guardiola only two matches to have a chant, and it took the same amount of time for Jesus to get his own "music" from the City fans. Pep's chant is kind of cool, taking the "Glad All Over" music usually sang by Crystal Palace and replacing "I'm feeling... glad all over!" with "We've got... Guardiola!", and it's really nice to listen to.

The song for Jesus is not nice to listen to. Because it's not something original. It's just the same old lyric we've heard for years:

"We've got [player], [player's full name], I just don't think you understand... He's [a cheap signing, a coach's man or his shirt number], he's [better than a rival team's famous player], we've got [player's full name]."

Tottenham Hotspur fans use that chant for Dele Alli. West Ham United used that chant for Dimitri Payet until he broke their hearts. And now Manchester City fans are using that same chant for Gabriel Jesus.

If you want to listen to it, here it is. I must warn you, though: you won't hear anything special, creative or original.

"We've got Jesus, Gabriel Jesus, I just don't think you understand... He's number thirty-three, he's better than Rooney, we've got Gabriel Jesus!"

Is that really good? I'm not sure, but at least the kid has got a chant already. Let's make it better, though. It's Jesus, guys.
