Gabriel Jesus scored a stunning brace to guide Manchester City to a dominant 4-1 defeat of Burnley on Tuesday night.
Despite a lack of light in their dressing room before the clash at Turf Moor, Jesus shone brightly in the absence of Sergio Aguero.
The Brazilian broke the deadlock with a sublime curling effort in the first-half before doubling his tally with a fantastic volley after the break.
Rodri scored a stunner of his own to make it three and Riyad Mahrez came off the bench to score yet another superb solo goal as Man City returned to their very best.
