Gabriel Jesus’ arrival reportedly posed a threat to Sergio Aguero’s Manchester City role, but the two have since formed a good partnership

Gabriel Jesus is enjoying his growing partnership with Sergio Aguero whom he terms as “amazing”.

Raheem Sterling came to the rescue last night as City pulled a goal back to draw against Everton with our old Enemy Rooney putting them ahead in the first half.
