Arsenal star Gabriel Jesus leaves Clinton Morrison in awe against Leicester

Arsenal star Gabriel Jesus left Clinton Morrison in awe with his start to the home game against Leicester City. The former Crystal Palace forward gushed over the Brazilian’s performance while speaking further Sky Sports’ Football Saturday (13.08., 3:22 p.m.) when Jesus broke the deadlock.

Leicester fell behind in the 23rd minute at the Emirates Stadium when Jesus hit the net on his home debut. Arsenal bought the striker from Manchester City in the off-season £45 millionas Mikel Arteta filled in the gaps left by Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Jesus made a lively competitive debut as Arsenal defeated Crystal Palace to raise the curtain on the new season. But the 25-year-old failed to find the back of the net at Selhurst Park despite his tricky footwork and endless effort to get the Eagles in front.

However, Leicester would be Jesus’ first victim as an Arsenal star as he broke the deadlock on Saturday afternoon. The 56-cap Brazil international made a fine finish in front of his new supporters, after driving forward from the wing before striking the far corner.

He crafted a creative finish to beat Danny Ward in the Foxes net and later doubled his tally. Jesus scored two goals for Arsenal until just over 10 minutes before half-time against Leicester £265,000 per week Attacker nods home his second from close range after a corner.

Gabriel Jesus, the star of the show, while the Gunners enjoy a rousing start

Morrison was certain Jesus was the absolute star of the show as Arsenal got off to a flourishing start at home against Leicester on Saturday. The player-turned-expert gushed over what the four-time Premier League winners produced to give Arteta’s side a 2-0 lead.

“It’s that man, Jesus,” Morrison said. “First he gets the ball on the left, goes past Jonny Evans. Complicated game between him and [Granit] Xhaka, the ball finally comes to him and he’s in the corner and he just leads it to the far corner.

“Fantastic finish: side foot, right into the top corner. Brilliant. He was the best player on the pitch, outstanding.”

Performances like Jesus’ first-half against Leicester will go a long way towards showing why Arteta has convinced Arsenal to spend so much on the striker to lead their attack this summer.
