Gabriel Jesus: Manchester City star equals El Hadji Diouf’s awful penalty record

The Brazil international missed from 12 yards in the Citizens’ away triumph over the Blades to match the Senegal legend’s unimpressive penalty feat

Gabriel Jesus� poor penalty run continued in Manchester City’s 1-0 defeat of Sheffield United in Tuesday’s Premier League clash. With scores still goalless after 36 minutes at Bramall Lane, the Brazilian fluffed a golden chance to put Pep Guardiola’s men ahead after missing from 12 yards.

Goalkeeper Dean Henderson guessed the right way to save the striker’s kick after Chris Bashman’s clumsy tackle on Riyad Mahrez.

Following that miss, Jesus has now missed three of his five English topflight penalties – equalling El Hadji Diouf and Stewart Downing’s terrible success rate from the penalty mark.
