'I do not know...': BBC pundit blown away by what 'brilliant' Arsenal play did against Leicester today
BBC Sport’s Michael Brown was left blown away by how good Gabriel Jesus’ opening goal for Arsenal was today against Leicester.
The Brazilian striker ensured he had a memorable home debut for Arsenal with two goals and an assist in front of The Emirates crowd. Since signing from Manchester City, the Jesus has made a big impression at London Colney and Mikel Arteta will be delighted with what he saw from his new man today.
And commentating on Arsenal’s win against Leicester today, BBC pundit Brown was left stunned by how easy Jesus had made his excellent opening goal look.
“What a goal from Gabriel Jesus! He made it initially, he was in a tight area. How he finds the space I do not know. He just leans back, opens his right foot and curls it over the goalkeeper into the far corner from such a tight spot. Brilliant finish, he could be a real hit here at the Emirate,” Brown said on BBC comms today.
The Gunners ran out 4-2 winners in the end against The Foxes, who for large parts of the game looked a class below the big spending home side.
For Jesus, meanwhile, it was the perfect home debut and a performance that will have whet the appetite of the Arsenal supporters.
TBR’s View: Gabriel Jesus Was Always Going To Fire For Arsenal
Gabriel Jesus could end up being one of the signings of the summer. City had their reasons for letting him go but for Arsenal to be the club to get him is ideal for Mikel Arteta.
Jesus was outstanding today and his opening goal was a microcosm of the ability and performance levels he will bring to the North London club.
