"Sergio is a legend of football. I have to score when I play because Sergio scores every time," Jesus said after the game.
Guardiola told BBC Sport: "We need him. I am so glad for him because he is an incredible fighter. He needs to score goals. We spoke about him - 'you have to score, my friend; you do a lot of things, but you have to score goals' - and today he did it.
"That is what I want, for him to try to be aggressive in this position, to not have doubts. The important thing is how you approach - the mentality. There's never doubt in the quality or the arrogance in the good sense. He is so important and he make two exceptional, brilliant goals."
