Have Manchester City signed a diamond in Gabriel Jesus?

Manchester City officially announced the signing of youngster Gabriel Jesus last Saturday but who is the 19-year-old? He cost the Blues a whopping £27 million, which a few years ago may have raised some eyebrows considering he's still a teenager but he shouldn't be intimidated by the price in today's market.

Manchester City Vs Arsenal Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Arsene Wenger’s Gunners were cruising at a fair clip when Everton threw a spanner in their stride during the midweek game at Goodison Park. Wenger attributed that stumble to a physical game from the Toffees. However, he doesn’t have to worry about threading a physical defense when his side travel to Manchester City on Sunday. Pep Guardiola is unlikely to ask his defenders to get stuck in and even if he did, I am not sure if he has the …

City Stutter to Win against Swansea

Swansea arrived at the Etihad managerless after the sacking of Garry Monk, and the interim manager Alan Curtis made numerous changes.

Martial's first Manchester Derby

Martial's first Manchester Derby

In a Manchester derby defined by both manager’s risk-averse approach and an overall lack of clear goal-scoring chances, Martial’s darting runs from the left wing were a welcome breath of fresh air.
