Since arriving Emirates, Gabriel Jesus has been proven to be a better signing so far for Mikel Arteta side
His performance during the preseason and the two premier League matches shows that his ready for business in Emirates
Against Leicester city last weekend, he display a brilliant skills and scored second brace for Arsenal, the first was in preseason
With this kind of display he shows again, not that we needed much reminding to explain why the Brazilian is such a good signing. An elite goal for his first and a poacher’s finish for his second. Two assists on top of that as well.
Mikel Arteta named an unchanged side from the one that defeated Crystal Palace on the season’s opening day as the Gunners looked to make it back-to-back wins to start the campaign. Kieran Tierney, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Emile Smith Rowe, and Eddie Nketiah were named on a strong bench for Arsenal.
After a lively opening 20 minutes, Arsenal took the lead. After some excellent build-up play between Martinelli, Jesus, and Xhaka, the ball found its way to Jesus, who produced a delightful curling effort over Ward in the Leicester goal.
Arsenal was rampant and doubled their lead thanks to another Jesus goal after 35 minutes. A Martinelli corner was flicked on at the near post, and it found its way to Jesus at the back post, who headed home his second of the half.
Leicester thought they had a penalty towards the end of the first half. Referee Darren England pointed to the spot, but after Mike Dean, who was in control of VAR, intervened, England was told to go and look at the monitor, overturning his decision.
Leicester found a way back into the game. A long ball from Jonny Evans found James Justin, who headed on into the penalty area, and William Saliba nodded back past Ramsdale and into the net.
