Since joining Manchester City in January, Gabriel Jesus has proven that he has the ability to fulfil his immense potential. 

The Brazilian signed from Palmeiras for a fee of £27m, which right now is looking like one of the best deals in recent times.

And following his goal in City's 2-0 away victory against Leicester, the 20-year-old earned huge praise from manager Pep Guardiola, who compared the youngster to Brazilian legend Ronaldo. 

With eight goals in nine Premier League starts, the forward is quickly becoming part of a frightening front-line with Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero. 

City have already bagged 40 goals in the Premier League and put numerous strikes past strong teams in the Champions League, showing that their attacking ability is arguably the strongest in the world.

 

And since his arrival, Jesus's contribution in the final third of the pitch is up there with the best strikers to grace the league. 

The 20-year-old sits fourth in a list of the most goals and assists after 21 games, as he has registered 20, the same as all-time top scorer Alan Shearer. Andy Cole tops the pile with 23 goals and assists, but Jesus is ahead of Eric Cantona, Micky Quinn and Robbie Fowler. 

With 15 goals and five assists, Jesus has shown already that he is lethal in front of goal, but he also has the ability to set-up his teammates. City face Feyenoord and Huddersfield this week, giving them the chance to continue their fine goalscoring form.
