'They see Richarlison': David Ornstein names 3 Arsenal players who'll be desperate to impress v Spurs

The Athletic’s David Ornstein has said that Arsenal’s Brazilian contingent will be keen to prove a point against Tottenham this weekend.

Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Martinelli and defender Gabriel have all been key all season. However, there is some uncertainty over their inclusions in the Brazil squad for the World Cup this winter. Both Martinelli and Gabriel are outside chances given the Selecao’s talent pool, but Jesus will be hoping to go.

Jesus didn’t feature in the recent international break, prompting fears he’ll be left out. And according to David Ornstein, that kick up the backside should ensure Arsenal’s Brazilian trio produce the goods against Tottenham this weekend.

“With Gabriel Martinelli as well, Gabriel at the back, they won’t want to be complacent. Because you can be top of the Premier League but so is Aaron Ramsdale, he didn’t get a minute for England. So they’re going to to be on their toes, they see Richarlison on form for club and country,” Ornstein said on the Five YouTube channel.

“It’s a big stage in front of the world’s eyes. They’ll want to prove a point for their team first and foremost but for their national aspirations going into Qatar.”

TBR’s View: Jesus Key For Arsenal Against Tottenham

Ornstein speaks about producing in the big games here and he is right as well. Gabriel Jesus needs to produce the goods against teams like Spurs and this weekend is the chance for him.

The Gunners signed Jesus for these sorts of game and with the shun from Tite and Brazil this week, Jesus will be more determined than ever to show his worth.

If Jesus can produce against Spurs and win the game for Arsenal, then it will further cement his growing reputation with supporters and already put him in the books of club legend.
