Gabriel Jesus described himself as “on fire” after helping Manchester City thrash Burnley 5-0 in Saturday’s FA Cup fourth round tie. The Brazilian netted his eighth goal in his last five games, and his 15th for the season, as City hammered the Clarets at the Etihad Stadium.
In the wider picture, City have scored 30 goals in seven games this year, all of which have been won, and Jesus says they are hungry for more.
The 21-year-old said: “I have started this year on fire, I think, (and) not just for the goals. “I think I help the team on the pitch, I work hard and I think I play well when I go onto the pitch. “My focus is to do this and I am so happy that I scored goals because I am a striker and I need to score goals. “When we score the first goal, we want to score more and more, and to play well and win the games.”

Jesus set City on their way to their latest convincing win when he cut back from the byline and fired in a low shot. Bernardo Silva doubled the lead and the outstanding Kevin De Bruyne struck a superb long-range third.
De Bruyne forced Kevin Long to turn into his own net for City’s fourth and Sergio Aguero completed the rout with a late penalty.
De Bruyne, starting his third game in a week as he builds match fitness after injury problems, was influential throughout. “He is an amazing player and an amazing person,” said Jesus. “He has the quality to play every game when (getting into) this team is too hard because we have amazing players and everyone deserves to play.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
