Gabriel Jesus says he doesn't mind where he plays on the pitch in order to help his teammates following his starring role in Manchester City's victory over Real Madrid.

Eyebrows were raised prior to the first leg of the Champions League last-16 knockout tie when it was revealed that Jesus would be playing in the unusual position of left-wing, with Sergio Aguero dropping to the bench and Kevin De Bruyne in attack.

However, it was a masterstroke by Pep Guardiola as Jesus put in one of his finest displays for the Blues, working tirelessly down the flanks and grabbing the all important equaliser.

Madrid had taken the lead against the run of play early in the second-half but it was Jesus who brought the sides level with 10 minutes remaining, before De Bruyne scored the winner from the penalty spot moments later.

After his great performance, Jesus insists it doesn't matter where he plays on the pitch as long as he's helping the team.

"I can remember my time at Palmeiras when I come from the academy I play like a winger, and after I start to play at strike," the Brazilian explained to BT Sport.

"I go to the pitch to help my teammates, so it doesn't matter if I have to run back or run forward to score a goal. I have to help my teammates.

"It's good, it's good for us we learn a lot. We have to play sometimes different positions, that's good."
