That would have been an awful ending. Thank goodness for Ederson.

Another great win. But I'm going to complain anyway. Jesus needs telling that he is a striker. Never have I seen a striker look to pass three times when through on the keeper. Shocking. His all round play is great but once he gets in the box, he should be a striker. I'd like to have seen Sergio given a bit longer. What a beautiful back heel. Interesting to see him run with the ball immediately after coming on too. Pep always goes on about the ball doing the work being a key part of recent success. Sergio does what he wants.

Very controlling performance but I thought BMG played into our hands a bit. Poor tactics from them, it wasn’t working and they never changed it.

Agree with Gav on Jesus. I’ve never been a fan of him but he has improved this season however he’s still not a striker. He gets into the box and starts looking to pass rather than just take a shot. Would love him to come good though.

Frustrating player Jesus.Same can be said of Sterling who always wants that extra touch and inevitably it turns to sawdust..Pull the trigger!!

I have said it before and I will say it again for those that cannot see or understand it: Jesus is not a striker and never will be

I disagree. We do not see the very best of him because of Pep's demand of every player to work hard for the team in all areas. Therefore, he cannot just act as a pure striker.
