Jamie Carragher picks 25-year-old Arsenal star as the player to watch in the Premier League this season
Carragher’s decision to choose Jesus should excite Arsenal fans given the other players he could have selected.
Jesus is Carragher’s player to watch
Carragher has already praised Jesus since joining Arsenal, saying he’s an upgrade on Arsenal’s previous number nine: “Alexandre Lacazette has done a decent job for Arsenal over a number of years, but, they just needed someone there.
“I think Gabriel Jesus is a brilliant signing, I really do.”
The Brazilian has hit the ground running at Arsenal in pre-season, scoring at hat-trick in their 6-0 win over Sevilla last weekend.
Carragher isn’t alone in singling out Jesus for praise, with Stephen Warnock calling him the ‘signing of the season’.
Unsurprisingly, his manager has also been very complimentary, calling him an ‘enormous talent’.
