Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero played alongside each other in Manchester City’s 2-2 at Middlesbrough, but the chances of seeing that again look rather slim.
Most probably, Pep Guardiola will have to choose one over the other for the starting lineup, and the Brazilian is determined to be in the first eleven in every game until the end of the season.
There isn’t a starter or a reserve. The one in a better moment will play. It’s good. It’s the coach’s decision. We will fight for our place somehow
the recently recovered from a bad injury Brazilian told reporters. Gabriel Jesus scored against Middlesbrough, but his overall performance wasn’t the best possible, and he was the first to acknowledge that.
I’m a little tired, that’s normal. I am sad that I didn’t play what I know, but with almost three months out, it’s normal. Let’s work hard this week to be better on the next game
the young striker said. Having impressed in his first games after arriving from Brazil, Jesus broke his metatarsal playing against Bournemouth, and he’s happy to be back.
I’ve never been out for so much time, but I’m happy to be back, doing what I love. Now I have to train and play, train and play, to try to secure a place in the Champions League
he said. City remain fourth in the Premier League table, one point above Manchester City, and six higher than sixth-placed Arsenal, who, though, have a game in hand.
