Jesus: I Can Play Alongside Aguero

share on:

Brazil and Manchester City star, Gabriel Jesus has insisted that he can play with Sergio Aguero.

Guardiola deployed Aguero as a lone striker in their opener, but tinkered with his tactics against Huddersfield, fielding both his attackers.

The Spaniard was rewarded with six goals from his attackers, with Manchester City winning 6-1.

Aguero helped himself to a hat-trick, while Jesus was also on target, and the latter sees no reason why Argentine power and Brazilian flair cannot continue to be used in tandem.

Jesus told City’s official website: “Our team has six players capable of playing in the attack, all of them really good.

“Pep opted for Sergio and myself, just like he has done last season and I think there was only one match where we didn’t so well – but usually when we both play together we do a great job.

“We can indeed play together!

“Sergio and I have the spirit of scoring goals and always try to finish well. I’ve started this season with the aim to get better with my finishes, to keep helping the team.

“Pep is super intelligent and he knows what the team needs and when and of course, I’ll be always at his disposal whenever I’m called upon. I’ll always keep the same spirit.

“Our season started really well against Arsenal last week, especially as it was away which obviously made it even harder.

“We wanted to start strongly at home and our team did a great job against Huddersfield – we did what we’ve been practising and were asked to do, and the result is there.”

Jesus insists the Blues are not looking to put down any early markers.

He added: “We don’t play to leave a message to anyone, just like last season.

“We play because we love doing it, we’re at a great club and we want to keep writing history for Manchester City.

“So we must carry on, repeat what we’ve been doing and see where it takes us.

“It will be tough, but this is why we’re here.”

City’s next fixture will see them head to Molineux on Saturday to take on Premier League new boys Wolves.
