Man City boss Guardiola hails matchwinner Gabriel Jesus

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was delighted with matchwinner Gabriel Jesus after victory at Leicester City.

Guardiola was full of praise for Gabriel afterwards, particularly after the Brazilian missed a number of good chances in Wednesday's win over West Ham.

“We wanted to push [for a winner]," Guardiola said.

“Gabriel always brings intensity. He missed three clear chances against West Ham because he didn't shoot, and today he shoots.

“That's what I want from strikers. Go and shoot. Always you make substitutions for the best of the team.

“We [managers] are brilliant because they score, and we are not brilliant when they don't score – but it does not work that way.

“Managers do substitutions to improve, to do something that can add to the team, avoid mistakes. Always there is one idea."
