Poor defending from Sheffield United gave City the opportunity to score after just nine minutes.

Ferran Torres, despite falling over, ducked and dived away from his marker in the box before cutting the ball in to Jesus who tapped home from the six-yard box.

The goal breaks Jesus’ nine-game Premier League scoreless streak with his last strike coming vs. Liverpool on Nov. 8.

Play was stopped for a number of minutes early in the second half after Phil Foden and John Lundstram collided heads. Both players received on-field treatment before being cleared to return.

City continued to hammer the Sheffield United goal with Aaron Ramsdale forced into two good saves around the 71st minute mark, first from Oleksandr Zinchenko and then Aymeric Laporte.
