Jesus demands response from 'sad and annoyed' Manchester City

Gabriel Jesus has challenged Manchester City to channel their anger in Liverpool’s direction on Tuesday when they attempt a Champions League escape act.

Pep Guardiola’s side have endured the unfamiliar feeling of crushing defeat twice over of the past week, with two results that have taken a little of the shine off an excellent campaign.First, Liverpool stormed to a 3-0 win in the first leg of their quarter-final tie at Anfield last Wednesday before City surrendered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to Manchester United in Saturday’s derby, passing up the chance to be confirmed as Premier League champions at home to their bitter rivals in the process.All Brazil striker Jesus has to show for his efforts in those games is a pair of bookings and the scale of both defeats is not lost on the 21-year-old.”We are sad and annoyed, of course, because we have had two tough defeats in the two most important games of the season,” he told reporters. 227 more words
