After Mohamed Salah converted a penalty just 13 minutes into the Premier League encounter to give the visitors the lead, Brazilian striker Jesus fired home the equaliser around the half-hour mark to earn a point for his side.
But the 23-year-old feels his side should have done better against the defending champions, telling BBC Sport: "The result is not good for us, we know that because we are at home and have to try to win our games here but it was a tough game. They are the champions but we cannot drop these points."
He continued to Sky Sports:"It was a top game. We know they work hard and have a lot of amazing players. We had a chance to win the game.
"Both teams wanted to win. Sometimes when it's like this you have to control the ball more. We have to keep playing like this and try to convert the chances.
"We played at home and we have to win the games here. The result is not good for us and maybe it's good for them."
The forward took on a pass from Kevin De Bruyne and beat Trent Alexander-Arnold with a neat turn before firing home the equaliser and he maintains the piece of skill was no fluke.
"I did mean to trick the defender. I tried it and I scored," he added.
Jesus made just his second start of the season for City, having missedseveral weeks with an injury.
He made his return to action in midweek when he came off the bench to score in the Champions League clash against Olympiacos.
The Brazil international now has three goals from as many appearances and he says he is in good shape after his recovery.
"I feel good and feel confident. Of course it is different, my physical condition is not the same and now I go to my international team and try to help my country," he said.
