London, Feb 6 (IANS) Manchester City’s promising Brazilian talent Gabriel Jesus snatched a late 2-1 winner to save his team from an embarrassing home draw against Swansea City at the Etihad Stadium in week 24 of the English Premier League (EPL) football season.

Jesus opened for The Citizens in 11 minutes before Iceland’s Gylfi Sigurdsson levelled for Swansea late at 81 minutes from a shot executed from outside the box on Sunday, reports Efe.

However, Gabriel Jesus had the final word and grabbed a stoppage time goal with a header at extra time.
