    I'm not sure tbh. Aguero's just too good to be 2nd choice, even if his form isn't perfect. The level you'd have to be at to fully dislodge him would need to be Messi-esque. Other than that he'd need to be in sharp decline and that's not happening. The best Jesus can hope for is that he hits a level whereby he's being rotated with Aguero for reasons beyond preserving Aguero's fitness; such as tactics and things like having 'more rhythm'. Kind of like what I expect to see from Walker/Cancelo or Bernardo/Sterling/Mahrez. And that's ideal because it keeps things competitive too!

    It looks like Jesus is approaching that level though.

    That header against Everton wasn't too shabby.

    Pep seems to prefer Gabby over Kun away from home. Gabby has started 5 games away from home vs 2 starts for Kun (Bournemouth and Norwich), and Gabby wasn't available for Bournemouth away.

    incredible striker this lad, most of us said he will be the man this season and he's proving it, with his movement and all round game, watch out Sergio, Gabby is ready to keep you on the bench..

    Jesus 31 goals in 70 games compared to rashfords 31 in 120 games. Just wondering if anyone knows how many of those 70 games jesus has started? Must be pretty close to a goal a start?

    Don't forget that Rashford plays for a " big team " unlike Jesus. Much more pressure on the rag hero.

    Not that I'm in any rush for Sergio's eventual departure, but I do think Gabby will be a 30-goal a season striker once Sergio does leave. He keeps getting better and better.
