Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has insisted that the Brazilian, Gabriel Jesus does ‘amazing’ things for the team following Wolves 4-0 win.
Despite not being prolific in front of the goal, city boss was full of praise. Jesus netted a double against the Wolves to tally his Premier League goals to six this term. The City’s false no. 9 has surprisingly been impressed Pep.
After witnessing Jesus’ fines performance last night Guardiola, who seems perfectly happy with Jesus’ contribution, for now, has praised the striker’s impact on City.
“You cannot imagine how happy we are when he scores,” said the manager. “You can’t imagine how many things he does for the team that people don’t realize,” Guardiola said.
“He got two and he helped us with pressing and intensity. Joyful guy, we know the stats and he’s not in the highlights but what he does is amazing. He scored two and that’s so good for him and the team. Of course, strikers live for the goals, but look at assists, he’s been brilliant all season,” he concluded.
Meanwhile, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood set to start in a 4-2-3-1 Manchester United Predicted Line-Up against Crystal Palace. Manchester United is visiting Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Wednesday night, trailing leaders City with 15 points ahead.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes his team returns to winning ways as they played a 0-0 stalemate with Chelsea.
Probably Solskjaer will opt for the 4-2-3-1 formation, with Anthony Martial looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven. Along with long-term absentee Phil Jones, Paul Pogba and Juan Mata will miss the Crystal Palace game.
“We’ve had a light training session and we’re looking ok. Let’s hope there’s no reaction and hopefully, he’ll travel with the squad,” Solskjaer said.
“Edi has trained this morning and hopefully there is no reaction.”
“We’ve had a training session this morning. Of course, it was a light one and we’re looking okay,” he admits.
“There are a couple of doubts for tomorrow that we have to give as much time as possible,” he added.
