Hargreaves: Man City ace Gabriel Jesus best reserve centre-forward in the world

Former Manchester City midfielder Owen Hargreaves has hailed the impact of Gabriel Jesus this season.

Hargreaves compares Gabriel with Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino.

He said, "He's perfect for them.

"I think he's more of a Firmino in the sense that he's really unselfish, in the way that he works and presses. The other guys get the goals, I like him.

"I think he's probably the best reserve centre-forward in the world of football and I think he's probably the perfect foil right now for the other guys, who get the headlines and he does work for the other boys."
