Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus was the focal point of City’s attack against Burton Albion this evening, the Brazilian scored a hat trick in the Carabao Cup semi-final.
In the 57th minute of the one-sided tie, Jesus completed his hat trick with a lovely header as a result of some magic from marquee signing Riyad Mahrez. The Algerian delivered a perfect chipped cross into the box and Jesus rose higher than Burton’s defender to head the ball into the back of the net.
