Football pundit Sue Smith has praised the impact of Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus at the club. They signed him from Manchester City in this summer transfer window.
However, the striker has quickly settled into Mikel Arteta’s playing system. This has helped the club be at the top of the Premier League table in the first half of the season.
THE POSITIVE IMPACT OF GABRIEL JESUS ON THE ARSENAL TEAM
Sky Sports pundit Sue Smith has praised the positive influence of Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus in the dressing room. She also said that Mikel Arteta has made a masterstroke by signing him as their main striker. Sue Smith has further mentioned that he is helping bring the winning mentality to the Gunners dressing room. She also mentions that Jesus is helping set up goals for Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard.
Sue Smith further said,
“Jesus might not be scoring but look how influential he is. And I think bringing him in and Zinchenko to a degree, it’s that winning mentality. They’re used to winning and challenging for things and that also comes into the dressing room then and they can pass on their experience.”
Hence, it is clear that Jesus is bringing more than goals to the Arsenal dressing room.
GOALS WILL COME SOON FOR THE BRAZILIAN STAR
The Arsenal striker is currently 11 games without a goal. Hence, many opposition fans were mocking the Gunners for wasting their money on Jesus. However, the Gunners fans should not pay any attention to their comments. This is because it is clear that he will have one such bad phase. The striker had it at his former club Manchester City.
Another thing is their star striker is helping provide assists to the likes of Saka, Odegaard, and Martinelli. Hence, he is helping other players put the ball into the net. Therefore, the confidence in giving assists will soon transform into goals. Jesus will also have the chance to score a number of goals for the Brazilian national team in the FIFA World Cup in Qatar starting next week.
Therefore, Arsenal will now hope that Gabriel Jesus can rediscover his scoring form in the World Cup. They will also hope that he returns from World Cup without a major injury. He is very important for their title fight in the second half of the season after the end of the World Cup.
