A Fernando Gabriel Jesus brace helped Manchester City overcome Swansea 2-1 at the Etihad stadium on Sunday.
As Jesus continues to shine for the Citizens, Nigerian starlet, Kelechi Iheanacho, remained frozen out by coach Pep Guardiola.
While the Manchester City team was extremely dominant in the first 45 minutes, they had only Jesus’ early goal to show for their efforts at the end of a one-sided half.
Gael Clichy found David Silva with a throw-in and although the forward had his back to goal, he managed to turn and wriggle clear of Fernandez far too easily.
His effort deflected off Raheem Sterling but Jesus showed glimpses of his poaching instincts to arrive on the scene and hit a low volley past Fabianski to grab his second Premier League goal in the 11th minute.
Little changed in the second half as City resumed with sustained possession but unlike the first half, they played with less urgency.
Swansea seemed fairly content to loop crosses into the box from wide positions.
In the 81st minute, Luciano Narsingh bullied Clichy off the ball and passed to Gylfi Sigurdsson who was 25 yards away from goal.
Sigurdsson took a couple of assured touches before he drilled a left-footed strike low into the bottom right corner to get the equaliser for Swansea in the 81st minute.
Gabriel Jesus won the game for the hosts as he smashed home from the rebound of his saved header whilst completely unmarked in 90+2 minutes.
Manchester City is now third on the Premier League table while Swansea is one point above the bottom three.
