Gabriel Jesus returned to the starting lineup v Sheffield Unuted and really showed his quality. He netted the game winner and only goal in the ninth minute.

That was enough for City to earn the win. After the match he made comments on the match and his teammates.

Let’s dive in-

“It’s so important [clean sheets]. Our defenders are confident. Aymeric [Laporte] just came back and did so well today. John [Stones] has come back with his good form and Ruben [Dias] has come to help us.

“I think Ederson can explain better to you than me because sometimes he has nothing to save! When the ball does come to him, he saves it.

“For us [attackers] it is so good, we are confident and we just have to score.”

It’s really good to see a confident Gabe. He has had an up and down season with injuries and his covid scare earlier this season. He really seems to be rounding in to form and scoring goals can only help.
