Arsenal"s draw against Manchester City left Liverpool in control of the Premier League standings, but Gabriel Jesus knows there"s still a long way to go this season. "It’s the Premier League, it’s a tough league and anything can happen," he said, via The Standard.

The Reds are currently atop the table with 67 points after 29 rounds, two points above the Gunners, while the Sky Blues are third with 64. Since there are nine rounds left, the title race is still wide open and the Brazilian striker is confident his team has what it takes to get the job done.

"It is only two points, the difference [with Liverpool], and then we have a very good goal difference. Everything counts at the end, but there are still a lot of games. We also have the Champions League. This is the most beautiful part of the season, you try everything to win titles," Jesus added.

Gabriel Jesus notes Arsenal"s key change in Manchester

While their strategy at the Etihad Stadium gave a lot to talk about, Jesus left satisfied from Manchester as he felt his side improved on a key aspect to compete against Pep Guardiola"s dominant team.

"Well, to play big games, you have to sometimes change your body language," Jesus said. "To come here and play against them is not easy. We tried to win, I think we could have won. Maybe we played a different game to what we normally do, but sometimes football is like this. Each game is different."

Arsenal haven"t won an away match against the Citizens since 2015, but with 4-1 and 5-0 losses in their last two trips, the goalless draw feels just fine. After all, they managed to keep a clean sheet this time to stay on the title race.

"We had some chances, we could have scored and maybe won the game, but that’s football. We’ll take the point. We came last season and we suffered a lot, we conceded goals and we made some mistakes. So, to play against this team, normally it is hard and if you make some mistakes, it is even harder," the Palmeiras product continued. "We knew from the start at some point we had to suffer a little bit, [playing] deep. They are a team which loves the ball, we do as well, but sometimes it is difficult."
