Gabriel Jesus admitted his best was yet to come after keeping Manchester City's Champions League bid on track with a late equaliser in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium.

In his first start for 10 weeks after recovering from a broken metatarsal, the 20-year-old Brazilian rose unchallenged in the box to head home a Sergio Aguero cross in the 84th minute and help his side cling on to a top-four spot.

With three consecutive home games to come, City are now in pole position to secure the lucrative berth and Jesus believes he can only benefit from having played the full 90 minutes against the relegation battlers.

Jesus said: "After being out for three months, I am tired. In my case I am still not 100 per cent fit, so I missed so many chances.

"I am learning that every game in the Premier League is really difficult and we know how difficult it is going to be until the end of the season.

"We controlled the game and missed so many chances, but at least we got a point and that is what matters."
