After opening the scoring at the Etihad, the 21-year-old referred to his form as “on fire”!

“I started this year on fire,” Jesus told ManCity.com. “Not just for the goals but I also think I help the team on the pitch and I work hard, play well.

“My focus is to do this and I’m so happy with my goals - as a striker you need them!

“I like every goal I score but that’s one of my top five.”

The forward also had a few kind words to say about team mate Kevin De Bruyne, hailing his quality both on and off the pitch.

“Kevin is an amazing player and person,” Jesus added. “He has the quality to play every game but this team is too hard because we have amazing players and everyone deserves to play!”
