Carragher names Arsenal man as best player so far this season

Jamie Carragher has heaped praise on Arsenal man Gabriel Jesus after his stunning start to life at the Emirates.

The Brazilian joined the Gunners from Manchester City in this transfer window and he has become their main attacker.

He didn’t disappoint in preseason and has taken that form with him to the league campaign.

Arsenal now has a player they can trust, and he is partly responsible for their fine form, which has helped them to top the league table after three matches.

Mikel Arteta’s side has won all their games, and he has contributed to the goals.

Carragher insists Arsenal is better prepared for this campaign than the last one, and Jesus is a good reason for that.

He writes in the Telegraph

“The manner of their victories have been eye-catching, Arsenal delivering dynamic, attacking performances.

“No matter how early it is, Arsenal look sharper and better equipped than a year ago.

“Gabriel Jesus could be a game-changing signing. He has been the Premier League’s best player in the first month.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Jesus has been an important part of our superb start to this season, but every member of that team deserves credit for their contribution so far.

The Brazilian will score many goals for us in this campaign, but it is the collective effort of everyone that will help us achieve our goals.

Alfie and Rob are back with the Just Arsenal Show and today they discuss three players who are seemingly on their way out.

  1. Exactly what I said after last Saturday’s win – it’s not beating 3 teams we should beat, it’s the *manner* of those wins, the style – and putting the opposition on the back foot early and nailing them there with early goals.

    It’s not only the goals he scores either, it’s what he creates.

    1. Yup, we’ve dominated these games for the most part and looked pretty comfortable. Last season we never looked like that – even at our best there were long periods when the other side was in the game. I’m really interested to see how we play against one of the bigger teams. I don’t think we’ll pushovers this year.
      And yeah, agree on GJ – well rounded attacker who makes an impact even when he doesn’t score himself. Couldn’t have hoped for better to be honest.

  2. Jesus has brought to Arsenal an ability to run off the ball and create space which neither Auba and Lacca were able to do during the past 2 seasons.This increased mobility has created more options for our attacking midfield players ,including I may add Xhaka, and as a consequence chances are being created on a regular basis.Whether we can continue to do so remains to be seen, but there is no doubt that Jesus has brought about a new, attacking dimension to our team.Interestingly, I believe vast numbers of Man City supporters have voiced their opinion on the wisdom of transferring Jesus and Zinchenko which in itself suggests that Arsenal have made 2 excellent acquisitions.

    1. To be fair, I think laca was creating space for others with his play, he’s just not of Jesus’s quality, doesn’t have the same athleticism and couldn’t finish at all. Agree with everything else you’ve said entirely.
      I think zinchenko and white at fullback has also allowed us to play an interesting system with them moving centrally when we have the ball, which has worked well. I do wonder if we’d change that when Tierney in particular plays – I suspect xhaka would be staying back to allow KT to push up.

  3. We can’t blame anyone. It’s for ourselves. Lacazate played a great role to where we ended last season and try to remember there was even auba who didn’t get to our expectations.
    Our attacking mids were not as matured as we see now and most of them were less in energy, enthusiasm and hunger

  4. A very relevant article.
    Not because am an Arsenal fan or supporter but there is not one player impress me more than Jesus this season.

    For whatever reason I just did not see this highly technical style to Jesus game before joining us, he is so balanced and strong too you forgot he is not a six footer.

    Its strange Saka has not benefited tremendously yet from Jesus presence, but one major difference between Saka and Pepe is Saka is very clever so its only a matter of time before this talented kid wet his bread.
