Man City head coach not ruling out playing both forwards in tonight's Manchester derby

Gabriel Jesus has been passed fit for tonight's derby against Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium and Pep Guardiola insists the Brazilian can play alongside Sergio Aguero in Manchester City's attack. 

Aguero has scored in five Premier League appearances in a row, with Jesus forced to watch from the sidelines since mid-February after his impressive start in the Premier League was halted by injury. 

"They can play together,” says Guardiola, who has a selection dilemma following Jesus's return to training. “It depends on the way we want to play.

“If you want to play without wingers - more narrow - they can play. All the players can play together.”
