Gabriel Jesus Is A ‘Real Threat,’ Says Arsenal Manager
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said striker Gabriel Jesus is a “real threat” as the Brazilian marked his home debut with two goals and two assists, as the Gunners beat Leicester City 4-2 in the Premier League at the Emirates Stadium.
The 25-year-old could have scored a hat-trick and was applauded off when substituted late on.
Leicester’s defenders were given a torrid time as Jesus showed the kind of form that earned him many fans at City even if he struggled to nail down a starting spot.
“I think it lifts the standards the way every day he is, the way he’s talking to (his team mates), the way they are connecting. I think it’s very natural, but at the same time, it’s pretty impressive to do it that quickly.”
