Let Jesus guide you - David Silva rises above the pressure for Pep

Gabriel Jesus will continue to keep Sergio Aguero out of the Manchester City starting line-up as long he keeps up his goalscoring form, according to manager Pep Guardiola.

"In these [next] three months I have to help the club and then they will decide if I have a place here or not".

Gabriel Jesus scored twice, including a 92nd-minute victor, as Manchester City climbed to third in the Premier League with a 2-1 victory against a dogged Swansea City on Sunday. He also played a prominent role for Brazil's U-23 national team as they went on to win gold at the Olympics in Rio last summer.

Guardiola appears settled on his first-choice front line of Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling — they've been played together for the past three games — and that spells bad news for Aguero.

Aguero has scored 11 goals in 25 appearances for Manchester City this season which is definitely below standards that he has set for himself. "He is 19-years-old so that's why we are delighted about what he has done until now". When you're on the bench, you have to wait for your opportunity.

Questions have been asked about his relationship with Guardiola who has urged Aguero to work harder off the ball, and had already dropped him for the Champions League defeat away to Barcelona in October before naming him as a substitute for the last two games. I have to help the team as much as I can in these three months.

"He's a guy who has a lot of energy, with the ball and without the ball, so I am so happy".

Pablo Zabaleta believes Aguero will cope with the competition from Gabriel Jesus, pointing out that his Argentina teammate has handled similar challenges in the past. Jesus has been so good that we made a decision to look at the numbers from his trio of league outings, and they make great reading for Pep Guardiola...

City took a 1-0 lead into the halftime break, knowing they needed another goal or two to avoid any Swansea comeback.

"I think we can all see and get the feeling that there is something very positive happening and we just have to build on that".

But Aguero might just be the pick of the lot. And even though he ended up staying, Costa could still leave in the summer.

After arriving in England at the start of last month, Jesus is emerging as one of the most exciting prospects to land in the English top flight for some time.
