Gabriel Jesus hasn’t particularly found his way into becoming the top choice upfront for Coach Pep Guardiola as the Spaniard opted for Argentine hitman, Aguero instead.

The Brazilian attacker, however, believes the return of John Stones back to first-team football will go a long in helping the club and the players find their best form which was lost due to early injury crisis.

Gabriel Jesus was in action for Brazil in there 1-1 draw with Nigeria in Singapore.

Manchester City suffered some defensive flaws which saw them punished by smaller oppositions in the Premier League.

John Stones finally returned to first-team football and he is likely to challenge for a starting shirt when Manchester City face Crystal Palace this weekend.

Two losses and a draw has left Manchester City with a mountain to climb if Liverpool’s current 100% Premier League form continues.

Over eight points separate Liverpool and Manchester City, however, Gabriel Jesus thinks the return of defender John Stones will help to reduce the deficit.

John Stones resumed Manchester City training last week after he had recovered from a thigh injury.

It’s been difficult because we haven’t had the right number of players in defense, according to Gabriel Jesus.

“We only had Nico and Fernandinho, who was doing a great job but isn’t a defender. (Via Manchester City Official Website)

It could be recalled that Manchester City were in a similar situation last season, but came back against all odds to lift the trophy at the end.
