Burnley's Tweet About Gabriel Jesus Instantly Goes Viral
Burnley's biblical Tweet about Gabriel Jesus and Nick Pope has instantly gone viral.
Manchester City's brilliant Brazilian was benched ahead of the visit of Burnley. Though he wasn't need after the league leaders maintained their impressive start following the 3-0 victory.
However, after equaling the clubs all-time goal-scoring record, Sergio Aguero was replaced by Jesus. And he nearly bagged his seventh league goal of the season.
But Jesus was denied courtesy of Pope's heroics between the sticks.
The exchange between Jesus and Pope served up an outstanding Tweet from Burnley who posted the following message: "83 - Pope saves from Jesus. Amen to that! 0-3"
