Gabriel Jesus praised by Dutch media in Arsenal’s victory over PSV


Arsenal’s high-profile £45 million striker, Gabriel Jesus, has garnered praise from Dutch media. It was for his impressive performance in the recent Champions League showdown against PSV Eindhoven. It was a match that showcased Arsenal’s dominance.

They secured a resounding 4-0 victory, with goals from Bukayo Saka, Leandro Trossard, Gabriel Jesus, and Martin Odegaard. Manager Mikel Arteta‘s decision was to start Jesus over Eddie Nketiah. Nketiah led the Arsenal attack earlier in the season during Jesus’s injury recovery. This proved to be a tactical masterstroke.

Dutch media outlets, particularly Voetbal Primeur, lauded Jesus. It was for presenting a persistent challenge to PSV‘s defender Olivier Boscagli throughout the match. Moreover, they highlighted how Gabriel Jesus consistently kept Boscagli uncertain. Thus forcing him into decisions about whether to track Gabriel Jesus or cover the spaces created by his dynamic movements.

Gabriel Jesus after transfer from Manchester City

Since his high-profile transfer from Manchester City to Arsenal, Jesus has added a valuable dimension to the team’s attack. It was vividly demonstrated in his performance against PSV. Arsenal will rely on Gabriel Jesus to maintain his top form. Furthermore, he previously made a significant impact as a substitute, scoring against Manchester United earlier in the month. Thus, showcasing his exceptional ability to exploit spaces both, behind the opposition’s defense, out wide, and in deeper positions.

The highly anticipated North London derby against Tottenham looms on the horizon. Arteta faces a pivotal decision regarding the striker position. Jesus has made a compelling case for a significant role in this high-profile matchup. This further solidifies his place as a key player in Arsenal’s quest for success. This underscores his potential to make a lasting impact on the Premier League stage. Jesus‘s presence promises to be a crucial asset in Arsenal‘s aspirations to achieve silverware.
