Jesus is having a more impressive start at Man City.

Goals: De Jesus 11′, 90’+2 – Sigurdsson 81′

Moving to Etihad Stadium in the recent winter transfer window, Jesus immediately played the role of a `savior` for Man City.

With positional acumen as well as the strength and speed of a 19-year-old striker, Jesus is often present in hot spots.

With a goal as capital, Guardiola’s team played comfortably for the rest of the first half.

Swansea (white) played like a mole in the second half, making Man City sweat.

Not taking full advantage of the opportunities, Man City pushed themselves into a difficult position in the second half – when the away team raised their squad and played fiercely.

At minute 48, if goalkeeper Willy Caballero – who was once again given the opportunity to replace first choice Claudio Bravo at the beginning of the season – had not punched the ball, the away team could have equalized from a free kick from the wall.

Jesus scored to tie the score.

Determined not to divide the points, Guardiola then returned the home team to an attacking position and sent Aguero on to replace Sterling.

This victory helps Man City climb back to third place with 49 points, one point less than second-place Tottenham and 10 points less than Chelsea.
