Speaking after the match, the 21-year-old thinks that striking with his left foot caught Jordan Pickford out, something he has been working on in training.

“I scored with my head for the second and I'm very happy with the first goal as I scored it with my left foot,” Jesus told ManCity.com. “I've been training a lot with my left foot, right foot, my head and today when I had the opportunity and took it.

“I know the top striker score with left, right and with headers so I'm training more because when I have the chance I score first.”

Jesus’ opener was his first Premier League goal since August, ending a run off 11 games, and the Brazilian starlet has dedicated his two goals to his family.

“I'm so happy as I think I needed it (the goals) and my family were here, and they help me a lot so my two goals are for my nephews.

“I tried to play and help my team mates. Against Hoffenheim I played well but I didn't score, that's striker life!

“I'm happy with my goals but more happy with the win.”
