City saviour Jesus delights in match-winning double


"Listen, years ago it was Tevez, Balotelli, Dzeko and Kun (Aguero). We need a strong squad to win titles".

"And of course, Sergio has been playing for most of the years as first choice".

The Argentine striker has been dropped from the starting line-up in the club's last two starts, in favour of new arrival Gabriel Jesus, and now clubs will be keeping a close eye on his situation. He added: "I am fine".

With the triumph, Pep Guardiola's men leapfrogged Arsenal and Liverpool in the table after winning a 3rd consecutive match in all competitions.

But while this situation remains publicly harmonious between Aguero and Manchester City, this could turn ugly at any point for both player and team.

The experienced Ivorian midfielder told City's official website on his talented team-mate: "He is a very good player".

The 28-year-old has scored 18 goals in 26 appearances for the Blues this term but it seems as though the former Atletico Madrid frontman does not have a crucial role to play in his manager's long-term plans. Having scored the first league goal of Guardiola's reign, he has become a strangely peripheral figure at Manchester City.

Last month, Augero missed the 3-0 FA Cup victory over Crystal Palace with an injury and was only fit for a bench place during the side's 4-0 win against West Ham on Wednesday.

"It was a very, very tough game for us".

Sergio Aguero has vowed to work hard over the remainder of the season to prove beyond doubt his future lies at Manchester City.

"He is with his mother here and she is a nice person so he has control in his life and I think he is so, so stable".

Guardiola feels Jesus, who joined from Palmeiras for an initial fee of £27million, has a remarkable mentality for such a young player.

Zabaleta and Aguero are global team-mates with Argentina and have been together at City since the striker arrived in 2011.
