Just in:Jesus breaks Neymar's UCL record to become fastest Brazilian to score 10 goals in UCL


Gabriel Jesus broke a record held by PSG star Neymar as he also reached 100 career goals with a Champions League hat-trick against Dinamo Zagreb.

Reaching 100 goals wasn't the only milestone that Jesus achieved in Zagreb on Wednesday, as the City striker also became the fastest Brazilian to reach 10 goals in the Champions League.

Neymar accomplished the feat at 23 years and 75 days, but Jesus overtook him by scoring his 10th goal in the Champions League at 22 years and 252 days.

Jesus has now scored 10 goals in all competitions for City this season, reaching the mark in 21 total appearances.

The Brazil international has started five straight games for City as Sergio Aguero remains sidelined with a thigh injury he sustained in a game against Chelsea on November 23.

Jesus will look to add to his total on Sunday when City take on Arsenal in the Premier League, before Guardiola's side face Oxford United in the Carabao Cup three days late
