Gabriel Jesus: Not just Manchester City's savior, he could change your Fantasy team

New, comment

This kid is everything!

Gabriel Jesus is the newest sensation in English football. The 19-year-old Brazilian striker arrived at the scene just three weeks ago, making his Manchester City debut against Tottenham Hotspur. He nearly got an assist and scored the game-winner in that game, but the goal was disallowed for offside.

Jesus made his first start for the club in the FA Cup match against Crystal Palace, and made his first assist for City with a perfect pass to Raheem Sterling. That performance already turned a few heads, but Gabriel announced himself to the world against West Ham United.

The young striker was the best player on the pitch last Wednesday, dribbling through Hammers defenders, assisting Kevin De Bruyne and later scoring his first City goal in his first Premier League start.

Pundits, papers, fans, everyone is excited about Jesus. And if you own a FPL team, you definitely should be. Our friends at the Fantasty Premier League Show shined the spotlight on Gabriel Jesus, and advised whether or not your Fantasy team needs some Jesus.
