Manchester City matchwinner Gabriel Jesus says they deserved victory at Chelsea.

Gabriel insists everyone contributed to the win.

"We prepared the game to play well like we always try to do," he said.

"We came to play against one of the best teams, they're European champions, they have a lot of amazing players, so we knew it would be difficult coming here at their home. We played very well and won the game.

"I play like a striker. I can never turn properly with the way they play but I turned good and I took the shot.

"It was a little lucky but I'm very happy to score the goal and most important is that we won the game and everyone played so good!"

However, Gabriel believes the victory isn't a message to the rest of the league.

"This is not about the message. We always try to play good but sometimes we don't play so good.

"We have a lot of top players to create the chances and to score the goals. That's what I think we have."
