Manchester City fans delighted for Gabriel Jesus after sublime display vs Norwich City


A selection of Manchester City fans on Twitter were delighted for Gabriel Jesus after his stellar display in the 5-0 Premier League win over Norwich City.

The Cityzens started the campaign with back-to-back losses, and they came up with the perfect reply with a dominant display against the Canaries that was expected.

Gabriel Jesus was handed a rare start from the right-wing position, and he excelled over the course of 90 minutes with a man of the match performance.

The Brazilian’s cross in the seventh minute induced Tim Krul’s own goal. Midway through the half, he delivered another cross leading to Jack Grealish’s fortuitous debut goal.

He capped the performance with another assist for Raheem Sterling in the 71st minute. It was one of his best displays in a while, and some fans were clearly pleased.

Twitter reactions:

Jesus has played regularly on the right-wing for Brazil, but he has barely done so at City. Just five of his 197 appearances have come from the position.

The 24-year-old had the perfect game with an impressive pass success rate of 92.7. He was a frequent threat with crosses. He linked up splendidly with Kyle Walker.

Jesus’ future at the club has been frequently speculated, and it was recently claimed that he could be offered as a makeweight to sign Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane.

He came up with the perfect response against the Canaries. With the ease with which he was playing, he could establish himself in the wide attacking role.

Of course, the £54 million-rated star can not be judged by one performance. It will be interesting to see whether he can continue to impress from his new position.
