Gabriel Jesus enhanced his growing popularity at Manchester City with two goals on his full home debut, the second coming in added time to snatch a dramatic victory against Swansea at the Etihad. Gylfi Sigurdsson looked as though he had dealt City's title hopes a potentially fatal blow and given Paul Clement's side a vial point in their battle against relegation when he struck in the 81st minute to cancel out the Brazilian's first-half opener. But with almost two of the four added minutes already played, David Silva crossed for Jesus to head goalwards from close-range. Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski kept it out but fumbled the ball, and City's new £27million signing tucked away his third goal in two games; much to the relief of Pep Guardiola as his side go up to third.
