Carragher puts Arsenal man in the same class as Haaland

Jamie Carragher believes Gabriel Jesus and Erling Haaland are two of the Premier League’s best players this season.

Jesus swapped Manchester City for Arsenal in the last transfer window and he has been in stunning form at the Emirates.

The Citizens replaced him with Haaland from Borussia Dortmund, and the Norwegian has been a delight.

He is tearing up the Premier League and rubbishing its tag for being the most competitive league in the world.

Haaland could lead City to another title, but Arsenal is currently at the top of the league table, thanks in part to Jesus.

Former Liverpool man, Carragher labels both players “electrifying”

He said to Talk Sport: “I think it’s been a brilliant start to the season, I’ve really enjoyed it. Obviously, Haaland’s the standout one, him and Jesus I think have been absolutely electric and been fantastic.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Jesus has been such an exciting player since he moved to the club, and we can consider him one of the leading lights at the Emirates this season.

His experience winning several trophies at City could help transform us into serial trophy winners with him on the team.

Hopefully, he will stay fit and maintain his current run of form.

  1. Different types of player, offering different things.

    Jesus makes things happen, lays on assists and scores goals too. Haaland… not so much.

    I saw a heat map of Haaland’s location in one City match early on in the season – two small red ball blobs, one in the centre circle (when the opposition had the ball) and one in the penalty box just in front of the 6 yard box when City had the ball. Almost all of the rest was green (meaning he was never there).

    Haaland is an old-style “poacher” / “scrounger”, he does one thing and does it well – City bought him because their other 10 players create a lot of chances so Haaland will score a lot of goals. That doesn’t make him right for Arsenal though, since a lot of what we do offensively this season is all about what Jesus does *apart* from scoring goals.

    1. Have you check Haaland goals record for Norway?
      Does it mean all 10 players of Norway are also creators.

      We Arsenal fan love to overhype our players too much and always been sentimental about it.

      G.Jesus can’t be compared to Haaland no matter how hardworking he his except he start putting the ball inside the net.

      Mbappe is hardworking and yet still putting the ball inside the net.

      Mbappe and Haaland are world-class, G.Jesus is not. He’s a good player no doubt about that but not close to Haaland.

      Mbappe and Haaland will always start in every big team in the world but G.Jesus can’t start in all big team, that’s the difference between both players.

      If G.Jesus can even score the amount of goals Auba scored, then he has tried his best.

      If Arsenal has Haaland during Fabregas time, I’m sure we would have win the league 3 times.

      That been said, G.Jesus has brought alot of fresh air to our team compare to Laca and Auba time.

      I’m loving G.Jesus every single day.

      Thank you Arteta and Edu for bringing him in.

  2. I still prefer Jesus because of the other qualities he offers on the pitch. However, he needs to prove on his composure in one on one. He has missed several of them this season already. These are situation he might look back and regret at the end.

  3. The boys are really doing best, and I wish the more. Let Arsenal lead the EPL table, before the City overtake. Partey, Saka and Lokonga are doing best too, giving a big opportunity to Jesus and others to score. Keep doing well in the upcoming matches, so far we only lost one match of six wins, zero draw. This sound well to every supporter, and please, try to defeat Man United on 23rd of January, I don’t want a lose again..
