Gabriel Jesus sealed a fantastic return to action with a game ending second goal as City’s perfect start to the Champions League group stage continued against Greek champions Olympiakos.

Ferran Torres scored early on before Jesus jumped off the bench to secure victory towards the end of the game.

Joao Cancelo added a solid late third as City has a 100% start to Group C.

A win, clean sheet and Jesus return. We move.

“It is important, of course the fact that Gabriel is back,” said Pep.

“He is so important for us. He scored a brilliant goal, and I’m so happy that Gabriel is back.”

“He played really well again and he scored a brilliant goal,” said Pep.

“He moves really well with the ball and without the ball. He’s growing, but he’s already scored a lot of goals. We’re happy for his performance.

“Overall in the first half, we played really good in all aspects; the way we pressed, the way we played, but unfortunately the finishing, the last pass, the last shot wasn’t perfect.

“But in general, the first half and the last 15 minutes was really good.

“The way we played the chances we created we had to score more.

“We created chances and then at the end when Gabriel scored, the game was over.”

“Tomorrow is regeneration,” he said. “I saw the forecast and the next few days is sunshine, so that is the best news.

“Then we have two days to prepare for Liverpool - but now is the time to enjoy this victory, the position in the table and move forward.

“Always during my career you have four days between games so they will have tomorrow afternoon off and Thursday to be at home with the family.

“Then we have two days to prepare for the last game before the international break.

“I’m delighted with the players in the situation we have. We struggled in the beginning but we move forward.

“It’s still just six seven games in the Premier League and we have a lot if games to play and one game left before the international break.

“Now is time to enjoy tonight, I want to think about tonight, nine points and recovery, then tomorrow we will prepare for Liverpool.”
