The sample size may be small, but Gabriel Jesus has certainly put the Premier League on notice that he is a potential superstar in the league.
The 20-year-old Brazilian made his league debut for Manchester City at the end of January and picked up an injury that limited his minutes this spring, but when he has been on the pitch he's been the most lethal forward in the league, averaging just over an hour of playing time for every goal or assist.

The Brazilian has now scored six goals and racked up three assists in just seven league starts for Pep Guardiola's side, showing well enough in his early starts to put Sergio Aguero's starting spot very much in doubt.
With 25-year-old Kevin De Bruyne also setting an imprssive mark for the club in Tuesday's win over West Brom, and Champions League play all but locked up for next season, the future looks very bright for City.
