Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola praised Gabriel Jesus’s impact in the 1-1 draw against English champions Liverpool.
The Brazilian striker played his first Premier League game for Man City after returning from injury. He had been out of action for nearly 6 weeks before coming back against Olympiakos in the Uefa Champions League.
The Brazilian’s goal against Liverpool makes it 2 goals in 2 games for the striker since his comeback.
Jesus finished smartly to equalize for City after Mo Salah converted a penalty to give Liverpool the lead. Receiving a pass from Kevin De Bruyne inside the box, Jesus executed a sensational flick to take the ball away from Trent Alexander Arnold and finished smartly past Allison into the left hand side of the goal.
Speaking after the game, Pep Guardiola praised the Brazilian, Saying:
“He was really good. I didn’t expect he could sustain 90 minutes but he did it. His physicality is so strong and his rhythm. He helped us, he made a fantastic goal as a striker and a good result for him”.
Gabriel Jesus’s return would certainly be a boost for Man City.
The striker will join up with the Brazilian International team during the domestic break before coming back to face Tottenham Hotspurs on the 21st of November.
