Gabriel Jesus grateful for Aguero support

CAN'T STOP, WON'T STOP: Gabriel Jesus finds the back of the net.... again
Gabriel Jesus has paid tribute to Sergio Aguero’s support in helping him rediscover his best form.

The Brazilian striker is now joint top scorer with Aguero on 14 goals and after bagging seven goals in his last three game - and Jesus says his fellow striker has been an inspiration to him.

“Sergio is an amazing player and helps me a lot,” said Jesus.

“When he plays, he helps the team and when I play, I want to help the team as well. He has been a great help.

“I’m playing better and I’m scoring goals, which is important for any striker.

“I am playing for an amazing club and I need to keep scoring and to play well.”

Jesus also revealed he is no worse for wear after his collision with the post in the first-half, adding: “I’m good – I have a little pain at the back of my head and it’s obviously dangerous when you hit your head like that, but I’m good and feel fine.”

Kyle Walker admitted the sending off of Willy Boly made the task against Wolves a little easier but was impressed with the way the visitors played.

“I haven’t seen the incident, but obviously it’s a bit easier when your opponent goes down to ten men but to be fair to Wolves, they gave it a good go and we were probably fortunate to win by three goals,” said Walker.

On his recent return to the first team, he added: “It’s obviously disappointing when you’re not in the starting eleven, but it was a reality check and you probably learn more sometimes from watching games from the bench and seeing the bigger picture.

“I took it on the chin and just have to keep working hard and make sure I’m in the starting eleven.”

On City’s blistering form going into the New Year, he said: “I don’t think anything has changed since the start of the season, we’re just getting the rub of the green, now and our luck has started to change.

“We’re in four competitions and we want to win every one, so we just have to keep going.

“Liverpool are still four points ahead, but we can only make sure we win our games and everything else will look after itself.”
