Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus closes on unbeaten year as Wolves approach

Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus closes on unbeaten year as Wolves approach”

Manchester City moved five points clear at the top of the Premier League as Sergio Aguero's record-equalling strike set them on their way to a 3-0 win over Burnley at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

Pep Guardiola had opted to partner the forwards together in his starting line-up this season prior to Aguero suffering a broken rib in a auto accident in Amsterdam, while Jesus was the striker left out in the 3-0 win over Burnley last weekend.

And they are closing in on three separate landmarks as they prepare to host Championship leaders Wolves in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup tonight.

It's just a matter of time before Sergio Aguero becomes Manchester City's all-time top scorer.

It extended the striker's personal run without defeat in competitive football to 34 games - a run stretching back to October 29 previous year - before he joined City in a £27m deal. I support him and I hope he can beat the record as soon as possible. He's an incredible guy.

As reported by The Independent, Jesus said, "I think the worst moment of my career so far was the injury I had here, but it didn't knock me down".

It has been a great year all round for Jesus and it could yet become even more impressive, because if he plays in City's next two games - against Wolves and West Brom - and avoids losing, he will have gone 12 months without suffering a competitive defeat for club and country. All of us know what type of player he is. I'm very happy to have the opportunity to be coached by a great manager and a great person. The Brazil worldwide has scored 15 goals in 23 appearances for Pep Guardiola's side and who knows how many more he could have secured had he not sustained a fractured metatarsal at Bournemouth in February which kept him out of action for more than two months. With 15 goals in 22 appearances for the Sky Blues, the 20 year-old has taken the Premier League by storm, after many thought he might be too lightweight to compete with English defences.

"I get on with Sergio very well". I had everybody's support, from my family, everyone at Manchester City. "That helped me a lot to overcome the injury".
