Pep said he is delighted with his three strikers and how he uses them will be crucial to City’s championship chances.
In the absence of the suspended Aguero, Nigeria international Iheanacho again delivered on Boxing day as City won 3-0 at Hull City when he notched his sixth goal of the season.
"Iheanacho didn't play from the beginning [against Hull] but he has this talent, this quality and with Kun coming back - we cannot forget we played seven games without Kun in all competitions," Guardiola told the club's official website.
"Now Gabriel Jesus is coming so we will have of course three strikers who can sense a goal. And of course this is so important in a game like this."
City are second on the Premier League table, seven points behind leaders Chelsea.
