Man City boss Guardiola: Hat-trick important for Gabriel Jesus

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was delighted with hat-trick hero Gabriel Jesus after their 6-0 Champions League rout of Shakhtar Donetsk.

Highlighting Gabriel's workrate and determination, Guardiola expressed his delight.

"It's important," he declared. “Strikers live for goals but the quality of Gabriel is that it doesn't matter what happens – he always fights.

"You cannot have any regrets. At 2-0, he had another clear option (which he missed) but he continued to fight and help us.

"We need all the guys for the rest of the season. It is important for his confidence and for the rest of the team."
