Manchester City cruised through to the last 16 of the Champions League, and they had their Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus to thank for it.

Pep Guardiola’s side were already through before tonight, but beat Dinamo Zagreb easily with the bang-in-form Jesus grabbing a hat-trick in the process.

"I have to do my job, my job is to score goals and help the team," he told BT Sport after the game.

"Last month I was not scoring so I felt so bad because I have to score, help my teammates. Now the goals are coming, so I am so happy. I cannot stop."

Speaking about the game as a whole, City boss Guardiola was pleased with his side’s performance.

"We played 75 minutes very, very well," said Guardiola. "We'd qualified, but we came here for the club, for the prestige, to learn to play in this competition.

"We had many absences, but we got a good result and hopefully it will help us in the future."
