Gabriel Jesus has now scored 7 times in his last 5 national games including Everton, who must be tired of watching him hitting goals. Pep Guardiola the manager saluted Manchester City’s fighting spirit as Jesus added to his notable records against Everton 2-1 win on 1st Jan 2020. Jesus was given the start as City’s manager Guardiola rested Sergio Aguero.
The choice to select the Brazilian forward rather than club’s record goal-scorer could have been encouraged by his mastery of analysing Everton. Paying his manager’s confidence, Jesus broke-through Everton defence once again.
Jesus has now scored 7 times including his last 5 games against the Merseyside club, who must have predicted the excellence of him. Guardiola was delighted the way game turned out in midst of a hard time. He also slipped in saying just with 3 more to the board to close Leicester.
The City remains 3rd in the Premier League after a 2nd consecutive win which leaves them only with 11 points behind Liverpool, who have games to be played in the champions. The Man City manager said that even if they are close to the 1st position this was an important win so they cannot rest especially having FA Cup and EFL Cup in the list.
Everton’s Richarlison got one for the team, however, it was the 1st downfall for the new boss Carlo Ancelotti, who had mastered wins over Burnley and Newcastle. There would be no duplication against the City side with the evidence of establishing wins of 2019. Manchester City won ten trophies, including 4 Premier League titles, in the decade that just closed.
Pep Guardiola highlighted that Liverpool’s extraordinary performance in the last eighteen months is to be considered a very serious threat to the teams growing ranks. The manager has already agreed that the City has less chance of catching up with Liverpool this season. Instead, his sights were set on the upcoming matches and their challenges to be faced by them and admitting that they do need to play better and pray.
Although a need for divine intervention against Everton team players is doubtful with Aguero, Raheem Sterling and Kyle Walker in the teams led by Guardiola. The crowd nearly held their breath of shock when Seamus Coleman of Everton’s goal was a hard one-handed save from Claudio Bravo Man City’s goalkeeper.
