VIDEO: Gabriel Jesus gives Manchester City the lead against SwanseaPublished February 05, 2017
Gabriel Jesus has scored his second goal in five days to put Manchester City ahead against Swansea City at the Etihad.
The highly-rated Brazilian, who also found the net against West Ham in midweek in what was his inaugural strike for the Sky Blues, took advantage of good play from David Silva to break the deadlock after just 11 minutes.
Again selected ahead of usual first-choice striker Sergio Aguero, the 19-year-old starlet drove home to repay manager Pep Guardiola’s faith.

The moment was the latest in a line of promising interventions from Jesus since his £27.2m switch from Palmeiras at the start of the month.
Defeats for Champions League chasing rivals Liverpool and Arsenal yesterday means that a win would send City into third-place in the Premier League table
