Jesus limps off for Man City as Aguero gets chance to impress

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has done little to quell the uncertainty surrounding Sergio Aguero's future at the club, saying that he was unsure where the mercurial Argentine striker would be plying his trade next season.

Ronaldinho has backed fellow Brazilian Gabriel Jesus to surpass Barcelona's Lionel Messi as the best player in the world.

Jesus, 19, was substituted in the 15th minute of City's 2-0 win and it is being reported he could out for up to three months. Today we started the game in fifth position in the Premier League and now we are second so it means everybody is there.

Conte later refuted the claims, labelling them simply as a "mental strategy", but Guardiola has again insisted the gap between City and Chelsea is too big to close down without the Blues losing at least three games.

Talented lip readers amongst you may notice Guardiola appear to offer his condolences to Arter for the loss of his stillborn baby back in 2015.

"He is someone I have a massive amount of respect for".

Along with Kelechi Iheanacho and Leroy Sane, Gabriel Jesus is part of a young attacking group that is bound to bring excitement at the Etihad Stadium for many years to come.

'For him to offer that to me, I respected it and accepted it with a smile on my face'. This weekend, Tottenham Hotspur lost, Chelsea drew and City have a real golden opportunity: a win against the Cherries puts the Citizens in second place, two points clear of Spurs and Arsenal and only eight points behind Chelsea. "He has showed us a lot of things".

"I was very happy with the performance of the team against Swansea and we have to keep going like that", he said. If I can change the model and play all four ... "He hadn't played the last few games because these three guys - Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling - were unbelievable but Sergio was important for us before this game and he is still important for us now".
