It was the 59th time he has been directly involved in a goal in his 65 starts for City.
“Gabriel and Sergio (Aguero) can play together, depending on the opponent's system," said the manager.
“Gabriel sometimes plays on the left for the national team. He is not specific winger like Raheem, Bernardo, Leroy and Riyad, but he can play there when we need more players in the box.
“He has an incredible work ethic, he can help us with runs in behind. His diagonal movement is so good."
