Manchester City’s Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus scored the third of those goals and even though it didn’t mean much to the team, that goal had some personal significance.

The Brazilian rifled home a shot from a Phil Foden pass which was indicative of his confidence right now with seven goals in his last four starts.

Before then City were taking full advantage of set-pieces as they opened the scoring through Rodri’s header and then Nathan Ake pounced on a loose ball to make it two in the second half.

After Gabriel Jesus made it three, Fernandinho drove home a trademark low strike from the edge of the box past the helpless Meslier.

The win took the Cityzens back to the top of the table, just a point ahead of Liverpool with four league games still to play.

The Merseysiders had won away at Newcastle 1-0 in the early kickoff which put pressure on Manchester City to respond with three points of their own or forfeit their lead at such a crucial part of the season.
