Jesus’s early strike enough as City see off Sheffield United1 min read
Gabriel Jesus’ 10th minute goal was enough to give Premier League leaders Manchester City victory over Sheffield United at the Etihad Stadium.
In as comfortable a 1-0 victory as you will ever see, the Blades never looked like repeating the victory in Manchester they enjoyed over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side on Wednesday night.
The goal came after Ferran Torres bamboozled Ethan Ampadu and Jayden Bogle on the City right flank before squaring for Jesus all alone on the six-yard box and he slotted home low past Aaron Ramsdale.
City failed to create clear-cut chances thereafter and had a late scare when John Fleck’s 25-yard strike had Ederson scrambling across his line in fear as the ball flashed just wide of the target.
The win, the 12th in succession, keeps City’s title charge on track while the Blades remain ten points away from safety at the foot of the table.
