Man City attacker Gabriel Jesus: I'm better for Aguero rivalry

Manchester City attacker Gabriel Jesus says he's a better player for his rivalry with Sergio Aguero.

Gabriel and Aguero were paired together for Manchester City 's 3-1 Carabao Cup win over Southampton on Tuesday, the first time they have started a game together for 13 months.

“It's difficult to describe Sergio," he said. “Sergio is the top scorer of the club and every game he shows us why he is the top scorer.

“I have to learn from him because he's a legend. Every game he scores. I want to score every game but I think it is different, me and Sergio.

“I'm 22 years old, I have to improve my football, practise my finishing and I have to learn from Sergio.

“This is City, the competition is very high, but I think City has good players and an amazing team, so whoever is playing I think is going to do a very good job."
