“Gabriel thought he should have scored four goals. That’s the standard, that’s the mentality you need to have to go to another level,” said manager Arteta after Jesus inspired Arsenal to a 4-2 win over Leicester.

In the second half, the former Man City striker played an assisting role for Granit Xhaka to score a third goal, before helping Gabriel Martinelli score a fourth for the Gunners.

“We know what Gabriel can do, ” the Spaniard added. ” I don’t want to fight him. I’ve never been a defender, but I can imagine I wouldn’t like it.

He’s very mobile, with his direct play, always responsive and proactive in any moment and stage of the game and that’s a real threat.”

Arteta also believes that the arrival of Jesus has helped bring Martinelli and Bukayo Saka to the next level: “I think Gabriel has raised the bar at Arsenal, the way he still does, communicating, connecting his teammates. team every day I think it’s very natural, but, you have to be impressed how quickly he does it.

At the same time, we are also asking the other players to score as many goals as possible. You can see the interaction and execution speed is now on another level.”
