Man City fans hail 24-year-old's 'under-the-radar' heroics against Arsenal
A number of Manchester City fans have praised Gabriel Jesus for his efforts against Arsenal today.
Pep Guardiola’s charges humiliated the Gunners at the Etihad Stadium, running out 5-0 winners.
City were two up against Mikel Arteta’s beleaguered side by the quarter-hour mark and three up by half-time.
Ilkay Gundogan and Ferran Torres capitalised on slack defending to score early on.
Granit Xhaka was then sent off in the 35th minute for a two-footed lunge on Joao Cancelo.
And Jesus added a third for the hosts just before half time to end the match as a contest.
Rodri netted City’s fourth in the 53rd minute and Torres got his second of the match with six minutes left.
While most of City’s players were superb on the day – Torres in particular – plenty of fans were especially happy with Jesus.
Guardiola gave the 24-year-old his second start in a row – once again on the right of attack.
And once again, Jesus was impressive, setting up Ilkay Gundogan for City’s opener and finishing off Jack Grealish’s cut-back for the third.
The Brazilian’s time at the Etihad has been pretty mixed so far but he could well become a key player for Guardiola this season.
Here is what some Man City fans have been saying about Jesus’ heroics against Arsenal:
Appears to have gone under the radar. But Jesus was immense today. So clever on and off the ball and really seems to have improved his strength holding the ball. Class act— MCFC McKenna (@Blue_McKenna) August 28, 2021
If Jesus can keep this form for the rest of the season he might actually win POTY uno…— Jerrish (@MCFCJerrish) August 28, 2021
