Manchester City striker, Gabriel Jesus brought his footballing skills home as he nutmegs his mother three times during an indoor kick-about and ended up falling two times in the process.

The Brazilian star has enjoyed a stellar first year under Pep Guardiola and has scored eight goals in the Premier League so far this season. But although he has proved his footballing ability on the pitch, he wanted to do the same at home as well.

Jesus took treated his 5.2 million Instagram followers to the 26 seconds video of his mother trying to dispossess him of the ball at the Manchester City home, but she was a lesser side to the star who has been making mincemeat of Premier League defenders this season and was nutmegged for the umpteenth time in few seconds.

We can feel the mother and child bond between the two as Jesus had revealed earlier that his mother means 'everything' to him and saying his phone celebration is a tribute to her. 

'I will not lie. When I first came to Manchester City, I felt lost about everything,' Jesus told The Players' Tribune earlier this week.

'My mother was going back and forth between England and Brazil, and it was extremely hard to be away from her, because she's been everything to me. She was both a mother and a father to me when I was growing up. 

'She was another hero without a cape. So when I score a goal now, even when she's not in the stadium, I 'pick up the phone' and talk to her.'
