'He's now full of confidence': BBC pundit blown away by Arsenal player's display today

Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus delivered yet another world-class display on Saturday.

The Gunners ran out 4-2 winners over Leicester City in their Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium.

Jesus weighed in with two goals and two assists as Arsenal made it two wins from two in the league.

The £45million man hit the ground running at the Emirates, netting seven goals in pre-season.

He has taken that form into the new campaign, and against the Foxes, he was simply unplayable.

Jesus broke the deadlock in the 23rd minute with a lofted finish over Danny Ward.

He then doubled Arsenal’s lead 12 minutes later, nodding in at the back post from a corner.

Leicester halved the deficit early in the second half through a William Saliba own goal.

However, the Gunners restored their two-goal lead two minutes later, Ward gifting them a goal.

The Leicester goalkeeper parried a cross into the path of Jesus, who set up Granit Xhaka for Arsenal’s third.

On 74 minutes, James Maddison rifled in an effort which went under Aaron Ramsdale from a tight angle.

But moments later, Gabriel Martinelli drilled in a fourth for the Gunners from the edge of the box.

BBC Sport pundit Michael Brown loved what he saw from Jesus in the game.

“Gabriel Jesus has wanted to be the main player and he’s now full of confidence,” he said on Radio 5 Live at half time (15:50).

The Brazilian also carved out another chance for his teammates midway through the second half, but it went amiss.

“His balance, determination, drop of the shoulder. Once Jesus is in that penalty area, you can’t touch him,” Brown said (16:29).

“Just as you think he’s got nowhere to go, he manages to get the ball right across the face of the goal but there was nobody there for a tap in for Arsenal.”

The Gunners return to action next Saturday when they head to Bournemouth in a 5:30pm kickoff.
