Watch: Gabriel Jesus leaves Marcos Rojo on his backside with great feet


Manchester City‘s Gabriel Jesus showed some lovely skill to dump Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo on his backside.

Jesus latched onto a great pass from Fernandinho before a clever stepover and shimmy which sent the Argentinian defender into a bemused spin, landing him on his behind.

It wasn’t all singing and dancing for the City attacker in a lively Manchester derby, as with time and space inside the area, he failed to shoot either side of David De Gea.

Fernandinho, meanwhile, has been somewhat the star of the show as he has picked out a number of probing passes, aside from just this one to Jesus.

And with Chris Smalling nowhere to be seen, the Brazilian really should have done a lot better with the shot on goal, but his attempt was weak and easy for De Gea.

Check out the video below to see Jesus’ fine skill – and also to see Rojo looking a bit silly.
