FPL managers put their trust in Arsenal man after his stunning preseason

Gabriel Jesus’ stunning pre-season form has made him one of the favourites to win this season’s Premier League Golden Boot.

The Brazilian has just joined Mikel Arteta’s side as one of the best attackers in the Premier League, but he never got the privilege of being the main goalscorer at Manchester City.

He will enjoy that at Arsenal, and he has already proven he will thrive with that responsibility at the club.

He scored a hat-trick against Sevilla in his last pre-season match for the Gunners, and that performance has assured Fantasy Premier League managers he is the man of the moment.

The Premier League website reports that the striker is now owned by 70% of managers on the platform, making him the most signed player.

They believe he will take his pre-season form to the league campaign when Arsenal play their first match of 2022/2023 against Crystal Palace this weekend.

Mohamed Salah is behind him, with the Egyptian being owned by just 58 percent of managers.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Jesus is clearly in top shape at the moment, and the Brazilian will bring lots of goals to the Emirates if he stays fit.

With goals also coming from the boots of the likes of Eddie Nketiah and Bukayo Saka, we will do well this season.

  1. Barring any injury, our first 11 is easily top 3 in the league. I am very confident of that. With any luck, we could even challenge for the trophy. Yes, I believe we are that good. However, where we may likely face challenges is when injuries strike. Lets analyse the positions one after the other.

    Gk.. If Leno leaves, I am not too confident about Turner. He may turn out good at the end, though. Good thing is keepers hardly have long term injuries.
    CB… I believe with Ben White, Saliba, Gabriel, Holding and possibly a 5th from the academy, we are adequatly covered in the 2 positions.
    RB… I think we are also Ok especially if White is able to cover for Tomi and maybe Cedric with weaker opposition
    LB… Zinny is a good competition for Tierney but I wish we could have a good LB in the academy to also rotate with the 2 for weaker oppositions as Zinny may be overplayed because of Tierney’s injury record.
    DM… to me, we only have 2 players in this postion – Partey and Elneny. TP has a poor injury record in Arsenal. Elneny may be Ok for weaker oppositions especially in a double pivot but if we consider how important a lone 6 is to our style, I will be looking for a new 6 that can provide good cover for TP or even play along side him in some games while we push TP ahead as a B2B.
    CM… We have Ode, Xhaka, Vieira, Lokonga. I wish we saw Vieira play but I believe Lokonga is ready to step up this season. Knowing Partey and Zinny can also cover there, a new buy is not all that important but I won’t say no to it.
    LW… Martinelli is good and ESR is adequate cover. Plus Jesus and Nketiah can also play there. So no issues.
    RW… Saka. This is a position I think we must strengthen. Pepe is not good enough. Marquinho is not fully ready and Nelson may surprise us this season especially if the players around him are doing very well but still it is too risky.
    Striker… GB is world class. Nketiah will also do well this season but getting a cover for the 2 and possibly someone who could also provide competition for Saka will be great.
    Assessment of our transfer window so far…
    Presently — very encouraging.
    New DM — very good
    DM + LW/ST — Superb
    DM + LW/ST + CM — Excellent
    DM + LW/ST + CM + LB — Fantastic


      I think you quickly ran out of superlatives, well before finishing and had nowhere left to go.

    2. Still not sure if we have a better starting eleven this season. Remember, we started last season with three strikers; only two strikers so far for this season.

      What we really need to challenge for trophies is not LUCK; I would say “good management decisions” from game to game and across all competitions. This incudes:
      – choice of formations and players
      – in-game decisions including substitutions
      – our attitude to free kicks, corners, dead balls
      – our approach to each game (start the game on the front foot) instead of the “deer in the headlights” approach.

      Arteta needs to prove he has upped his game since the disappointing end to last season. The ball is now in his court. I wish him well.

      1. “Remember, we started last season with three strikers; only two strikers so far for this season”
        Yes, but auba was practically useless for most of the half season he played, Eddie was either not ready or arteta didn’t trust him to play at that time, and laca was all heart but clearly not a top level striker. GJ blows all of those players away in terms of quality, so he improves the *first team* massively.
        I’m really starting to turn around on Eddie (in the good sense) so I think we have two solid options. It’s just if we are unable to play either of them for any amount of time where we’d really struggle. GM might be able to do it *if* we continue to play a dynamic attacking system, as we have been in preseason.

  2. Hopefully the FIFA game developers ea sports maintain the meta version of jesus now that he has moved from man city their partner to arsenal partner of their rival in game developing konami.well,politicking has been part of every situation in our lives so i won’t be suprised if they chose to knock his ratings down despite his sparkling form.big ups talisman.
