Birthday boy Gabriel Jesus scores in same week Sergio Aguero’s exit is confirmed as Man City continue Premier League title assault April 3, 2021 – Posted in: Soccer
Birthday boy Gabriel Jesus sent a timely reminder of his quality in the same week Sergio Aguero’s Manchester City exit was confirmed as Pep Guardiola’s men continued their title assault with a 2-0 win at Leicester.
Mendy’s second-ever Manchester City goal just before the hour mark set City on their way, before Jesus tapped in Raheem Sterling’s ball with 16 minutes left to put the Foxes to the sword at the King Power.
Guardiola’s side, who are 17 points clear of arch nemesis Manchester United at the top, also had a strike disallowed after Fernandinho’s 30-yard strike found the bottom corner.
Jamie Vardy also had a goal ruled out for offside in first-half injury time, but Leicester were second best throughout proceedings.
