Ben Foster names the Arsenal star that is deserving of more credit

Ben Foster has claimed that Arsenal signing Gabriel Jesus doesn’t get ‘the credit he deserves’ for the work he puts in on the pitch.

The Brazilian joined from Manchester City this summer, and is expected to take up a starring role in the Gunners’ attack in the new campaign.

Having been heavily rotated for his former side over the years, regularly playing second-fiddle to Sergio Aguero, Jesus time to shine is now.

Foster claims that Arsenal were let down by a bad start and end to the campaign, but that the underrated Jesus will be a ‘massive signing’.

“They (Arsenal) were struggling badly at the start of last season, it was a horrific start. It was horrible and Mikel Arteta was the favourite to get sacked.

“They kicked on but it was a disappointing end to the season as well. Looking at this summer, Gabriel Jesus is a massive signing, massive. I don’t think he gets the credit he deserves.

“Arsenal have been crying out for that type of player and I think he’s going to do really well.

“I do think they’ll have a good season and win some big games against some big teams, but I think they’ll just miss out on the Champions League places.”

It is hard to predict how the season will pan out, but I hope that we can at least challenge for a top four spot. A lot may come down to whether Jesus can continue his pre-season form.

Will Gabriel be our main outlet?

  1. It would be great to see everyone from the midfield to striker scoring, it would really help reduce the risk of Jesus getting injured.

    Let’s just hope Vieira is the rear gem 💎 we think he is.

  2. We’r still way behind Spurs….I think we need at l’East two EXPERIENCED signings inthe Caliber of Jésus….Tielmans and Sane anyone?!!

  3. People forget the full history so easily.

    When Jesus went to City his form was so good that he was the first choice starter. He was so good in fact that the reports at the time said that City were talking about selling Aguero.

    Then Jesus broke his foot. Aguero got some extended playing time and did well – and as is often the case, it proved impossible to shift someone who was doing well.

    And the rest we know.

  4. OT

    Sun is reporting that the Tielemans deal has been agreed.

    But it is the Sun, so… may or may not be right.
