Pep Names Surprise Star As City's Best Penalty Taker

After Gabriel Jesus missed another spot-kick in Manchester City's Premier League win over Sheffield United on Tuesday night, Pep Guardiola named a surprise star as the team's best penalty taker.

Argentina international Sergio Aguero saved Jesus' blushes in the Citizens' 1-0 victory over Chris Wilder's men when he came off the bench to score in the 73rd minute.

Jesus had missed from the spot 36 minutes into the midweek clash, which means he has now failed to score three of his past five penalties in the Premier League.

Asked after the match if he might consider nominating someone new to score from the spot, Guardiola surprisingly claimed that Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson is the most confident penalty taker he has at his disposal.

"Ederson is the best," he said, according to the Daily Express.

"Believe me, he's the best taker we have in penalties.

"Eddie has no blood in his veins. He's so calm, so he could do it."

City are currently 13 points behind league leaders Liverpool, who have two games in hand over last season's champions.
