Gabriel Jesus Vs Orlando City: Watch impressive performance of Arsenal new signing against Orlando City that shock the world
Gabriel Jesus became an Arsenal player following a successful transfer from Manchester city to unite with his former manager Mikel Arteta
It’s impossible not to notice the difference that occurs when Jesus comes onto the pitch. The whole intensity of the front line goes up a notch and Arsenal look so much more of a threat.
Aaron Ramsdale made his first appearance in the preseason, while other fringe players in Rob Holding, Nuno Tavares, Pablo Mari, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Mohamed Elneny, and Nicolas Pepe all started. Eddie Nketiah led the line for the Gunners.
It took the Gunners a mere five minutes to take the lead. A neat one-two between Gabriel Martinelli and Sambi Lokonga gave the Brazilian space, and his deflected shot passed Pedro Gallese in the Orlando goal.
The rest of the half was relatively uneventful as Arsenal headed into the shed’s level at 1-1.
The second half started with Arsenal in total control as Arteta made several changes. The Gunners took the lead in the 65th minute as Eddie Nketiah was jogging on the spot after Gabriel Jesus was tackled in the box, then the Englishman was on hand to hammer it home the rebound.
Gabriel Jesus completely changed the complexion of the game. His pressing, skill, and everything in between dazzled Orlando as they could not contain him. Another superb performance.
It may only be preseason, but Arsenal’s most important summer, Gabriel Jesus, signing is off to a hot start during their tour of the United States. In two matches, the striker already has three goals while looking comfortable with Gabriel Martinelli, Martin Odegaard, and Bukayo Saka in the attack. It’s music to Mikel Arteta’s ears as the team made quite the commitment to the Brazilian, signing him from Manchester City on a £45 million deal. He’s got the No. 9 shirt, a five-year contract, and the keys to the attack.
If this performance should continue on start up of the league, he has proved to be the best transfer of the window according to reports
