City secure vital win

Gabriel Jesus scored twice, including a 92nd-minute winner, as Manchester City took advantage of slip-ups by top-four rivals Liverpool and Arsenal to climb to third in the Premier League with a 2-1 victory against a dogged Swansea City on Sunday.

Jesus, preferred again to top scorer Sergio Aguero, poked home to break Swansea hearts in the dying seconds in what was another eye-catching performance from the supremely-talented Brazilian.

Almost made to pay

It looked like City would be left to rue a host of missed chances when Gylfi Sigurdsson equalised in the 81st minute after Jesus had earlier opened the scoring in the 11th. City -- who should have been out of sight but stuttered in the second half -- climb to third, one point adrift of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur while Swansea remain 17th, one point above Hull City in the relegation zone.
