Three Key Takeaways: Jesus' Brace Saves Manchester City vs. Swansea

  • Sergio Aguero

Sergio Aguero has admitted he doesn't know where his future lies after failing to make the starting XI for Manchester City against Swansea City in the Premier League, as Chelsea lie in wait to tempt the striker to Stamford Bridge.

Aguero was left on the bench for City's 2-1 Premier League victory against Swansea City on Sunday, with recent signing Gabriel Jesus scoring the opening goal and an injury-time victor. "He was ready when he arrived", enthused Guardiola.

Said Pep: "Gabriel Jesus made again a lot of things happen with and without the ball".

'You have more than one big player in each position.

However, City continued to apply the pressure and were eventually rewarded deep into stoppage time, Silva - an instant contender of man of the match - crossing in to find Jesus, who smashed home on the rebound after Lukasz Fabianksi had spilled the Brazilian's initial header.

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. In three years my contract is up, that's why I say I'm happy.

What do you think? "President Trump is bringing a very candid and direct type of leadership to the White House", Pence said. Pence was asked on NBC News' " Meet the Press " whether Trump was undermining the system of checks and balances.

But while Aguero may be considered a City legend, it proves just how great an impact the young Brazilian has had since making his Premier League debut last month. Despite the uncertainty over his long-term future the former Atletico Madrid forward, who has always been linked with a switch to Real Madrid, has scored 11 goals in 14 league starts but only netted twice in his last eight matches.

'I think it's good to have two players with that quality and healthy competition in the team.

"Aguero is going to play a lot of games." he declared.

Mkhitaryan turned creator as United put the game to bed five minutes into the second half, facilitating a one-two with Mata that freed the Spaniard to beat Schmeichel at his near post.

"You can get those or not get those, but it is the restart I am disappointed about". When he played with Sergio [Aguero] they both played really well.

Guardiola has been rewarded for his faith in Jesus as the youngster has bagged three goals in two starts and scored a dramatic injury-time victor against Swansea.
