Brazilian wonderkid Jesus netted three times in three Premier League starts after joining City in January, forcing Aguero to get used to the bench.
But a foot injury against Bournemouth kept him out of action for three and a half month as Argentine superstar Aguero reclaimed his starting XI place with 12 goals in as many games.
Jesus returned to the City bench against Manchester United this evening to put pressure on Aguero.
And former Atletico Madrid man Aguero has confessed he is resigned to letting fresh blood reign in Pep Guardiola’s team.
“He’s a very good young player which is why he is at City,” Aguero told Sky Sports.

Aguero reveals the Manchester United star he’d have at City
“I know there will be a time when I’ll have to step aside. Other young strikers like Gabriel Jesus will be brought in.
“When you reach a certain age, the youngsters start putting pressure on you and you have to be even better.
“I’m happy that he’s back now and that means I’ll have to be much more focused and alert when I play.
“If I have to start on the bench once again, I’ll have to accept it.
“That’s football. I always respect my coaches and I certainly respect Pep.
“I just want to play and give my all until the end of the season.”
