Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus says he is determined to try and claim a starting spot with the Premier League champions.
The Brazil international is playing second fiddle to Sergio Aguero at the Etihad Stadium and it doesn’t look like he will replace the Argentinian any time soon.
Jesus, who scored 13 times in 19 Premier League starts last season, has been restricted to just seven starting appearances in 2018-19, scoring six times.
With club-record scorer Aguero topping the scoring charts in the league this season, it looks like a tough road ahead for Jesus.

The 21-year-old insists he isn’t in a rush and will continue to work hard in the hope of earning further chances. Jesus said: “I achieved a lot of things quickly but it’s normal as I’m still 21 years old.
There’s no reason for any rush. “I’m staying on the Manchester City bench at the moment but I’m fighting to get my place back in the starting line-up. “But I’m fighting with the club’s top scorer in history, Sergio Aguero.
He’s been helping me very much and I’m fighting to get my place back.”11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH. The content of this ebook will propel you above your competition. DOWNLOAD NOW!!!
