Gabriel Jesus says he is happy with his form, especially against Liverpool but he is not satisfied, and feels there is still plenty of scope to improve. The Brazilian striker scored two in City’s 5-0 win over Liverpool on Saturday, taking his tally to 10 Premier League goals in 12 starts.
He’s also been involved with four assists, meaning he has been directly involved in a goal every 65 minutes he’s been on the pitch since his arrival in January this year.
Those are remarkable statistics – but the 20-year-old firmly believes there’s plenty of scope for improvement.
“In terms of numbers I am very happy but not satisfied,” he said.
“I intend to grow and expand even more.
“I am not doing an excellent season so far but I am doing a good season.
“I believe that technically I still need to improve, step up in my game and I hope that the more I watch and play the games, the more able I will be to impose my style.”
City were at their imperious best for much of the second half against Liverpool, creating a plethora of chances as they registered their third win from four games this season, extending their unbeaten run to 12 Premier League matches.
Gabriel Jesus feels they were more eager to win against Liverpool.
“Well Liverpool is a great team and they have been showing that to the world,” he said.
“We knew it wouldn’t be easy so we walked into the pitch with a lot of passion and eager to win this game. That was what we did and what happened.”
“We played for ourselves, to prove that we will do a great season. We managed to keep the ball and whenever we had the chance, we scored.”
