Arsenal’s new signing Gabriel Jesus proved he deserves to be in Arteta’s first team after the Brazilian scored twice and provided two assists as the Gunners beat Leicester City by 4-2 at Emirate Stadium.
The Brazilian, who displayed an impressive performance, however, inflicted pain on two Super Eagles of Nigeria’s stars who were on duty for Leicester City.
Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho were both looking up to getting their first victory after recording a draw in their opening match for the new season, but Jesus made it impossible.
While Ndidi had full-time play in a 3-5-1-1 formation that made him hold the central defensive role, Kelechi came in as a substitute in the 70 minutes and provided an assist four minutes later, which made Maddison score the team’s second and last goal in the match.
However, that was the best Iheanacho could offer, as his performance could not overturn Jesus’ impressive display.
The Brazilian has raised the standard in Arsenal and Arteta’s men are looking forward to taking advantage of his arrival to get the best out of the London club.
