Manchester City’s Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus scored the third of these goals and despite the fact that it didn’t imply a lot to the team, that goal had some personal significance.
It was Jesus’ seventh goal in his last 5 games, the one game he failed to score was against Brighton where he only got here off the bench to play the closing seven minutes.
The Brazilian rifled home a shot from a Phil Foden go which was indicative of his confidence proper now with seven goals in his last 4 starts.
Earlier than then City had been taking full benefit of set-pieces as they opened the scoring via Rodri’s header after which Nathan Ake pounced on a loose ball to make it two in the second half.
After Gabriel Jesus made it three, Fernandinho drove home a trademark low strike from the sting of the field past the helpless Meslier.
The win took the Cityzens back to the top of the table, only a level forward of Liverpool with 4 league games still to play.
The Merseysiders had won away at Newcastle 1-0 within the early kickoff which put strain on Manchester City to reply with three points of their very own or forfeit their lead at such an important part of the season.
