The Economic Times - - Sports: The Great Games -

Manch­ester City striker Gabriel Je­sus said on Wed­nes­day he had been “sur­prised” by his ex­tra­or­di­nary start to life in the Premier League. The 19-year-old ris­ing star ar­rived in Eng­land last month af­ter City agreed a deal with Brazil­ian side Palmeiras in pre-sea­son. While some over­seas play­ers take time to ad­just to the phys­i­cal­ity and pace of the Premier League, Je­sus has set­tled in im­me­di­ately with three goals in four ap­pear­ances. Such has been his im­pact, he has has kept Ar­gentina ace Ser­gio Aguero out of the side for the last two matches, which has in turn led to spec­u­la­tion about the Ar­gen­tine striker’s fu­ture at East­lands.
