Man City attacker Gabriel Jesus scores landmark goal

Manchester City attacker Gabriel Jesus netted his 50th goal in their victory against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The City star admitted that his landmark goal for the club had arrived with a hint of fortune, after his attempted header appeared to clip his shoulder before beating Wayne Hennessey.

"I tried a header, but I think it hit my shoulder!" Jesus said.

"I have to improve this side because I sometimes have difficulties with headers. What a cross from Bernardo as well.

"A little bit lucky!"
