Photo: Gabriel Jesus absolutely loves what ‘phenomenal’ Arsenal teammate did against Brentford

Arsenal made sure they went into the international break top of the Premier League after a brilliant 3-0 win against Brentford.

Mikel Arteta’s side dominated from the outset and subdued a Brentford team who have been very impressive this season.

Young defender William Saliba opened the scoring with a fantastic header that just crossed the line.

Fabio Vieira rounded off the scoring with his first goal for the club.

He beat David Raya with a thunderous effort from 30 yards.

Arsenal saw out the game comfortably, with Brentford struggling to test Aaron Ramsdale in goal.

Arteta was even able to make some Premier League history in the final moments.

The Spaniard brought on 15-year-old Ethan Nwaneri, who became the youngest player in Premier League history.

There was one moment that stood out for Gabriel Jesus, who showed his appreciation for Granit Xhaka’s left foot.

The pass of the game was arguably the assist for Jesus’ goal.

Granit Xhaka played an exceptional ball into the Brentford box, and Jesus headed home.

The Swiss midfielder was sitting 25 yards from goal in a central area, and flicked the ball towards Jesus.

His cross floated over the head of defender Pontus Jansson, before Jesus craned his neck ball, heading the ball out of reach of the Brentford goalkeeper.

Mikel Arteta has previously described Xhaka as ‘phenomenal’ and will certainly be thinking that after his performance today.

BBC Sport commentator Jonathan Overend (18/9 12:55) described Xhaka as ‘running the show’ and that was certainly the case today.

The Gunners will be top of the league for at least the next two weeks.

They face Tottenham when the Premier League returns in a huge north London derby.
