Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola described Gabriel Jesus as an “incredible fighter” and said his side “need” the forward after he scored twice as the champions got back to winning ways with a comfortable victory at Burnley.

City had won only once in their previous five games in all competitions and went into Tuesday’s match 11 points behind leaders Liverpool.

But they we are convincing at Turf Moor with Jesus curling home a fine opener for his first goal in 11 games.

Jesus, now the third top scoring Brazilian in Premier League history, then volleyed home Bernardo Silva’s cross after the break.

On City’s hopes of winning a third straight Premier League, Guardiola said sarcastically: “The title is over – that’s what I read. No-one gives us a chance, it’s done. No, I don’t believe it.

“Our team is stable and that’s what we want. For the distance we have against Liverpool it'd be crazy to think about the title, honestly.

“It is about the next game.”
