Parker admits Bournemouth can only try to keep Arsenal man quiet

Gabriel Jesus has been in blistering form since he moved to Arsenal in this transfer window and he opened his goal-scoring account with a brace against Leicester City last weekend.

The Brazilian is now replicating the form he showed in pre-season and he will lead the Arsenal attack in the match against Bournemouth this weekend.

He is one player the Cherries would be afraid of, but can they do anything to stop him?

Maybe not, but their manager, Scott Parker, admits they can only try their best.

He said, as quoted by Independent Sports:

“Gabriel Jesus is a brilliant signing, an amazing signing really,” said Parker. “Mikel had the player at Manchester City and he’s a top forward, an incredible centre forward.

“He’s probably got every facet to his game as a number nine: can drop in, can link play, is also a threat on your backline as well, endless work-rate in terms of pressing and leading the line from that sense.

“It’s a real challenge for us at the weekend to try and keep him quiet, he’s a big player for them.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Jesus is now one of the hottest strikers in the world and defenders would be terrified by his presence.

The Brazilian makes smart movements and also knows how to link play with his teammates.

These attributes make him hard to mark and he could be the difference maker when we face the Cherries.

  1. “One of the hottest strikers in the world” ? Let’s please not get ahead of ourselves, 2 games 2 goals, a way to go yet before we say stuff like that😊

    1. even from pre-season we could say he is really great. in the end’ it’s who you play with. I believe he has found the right mix of players to make him showcase his best qualities.
      He’s undoubtedly one of the best at moment. He even featured in BBC’s team of the week after the palace game without having scored a goal on that occasion.

    2. Agreed but hes looked top quality ,
      Movement off the ball ,harassing defenders and some good finishes,only negative is he Should have had atleast a hat-trick last game when he missed that easy chance .
      But so far so good .

      1. I wonder would he be here now without Arteta? Certainly would he be here now if Arteta had in his time at City shown he could not coach?

        I know the answers, I’m hoping you are starting to see it too. Rather than muted praise of for now or so far so good etc. Your excited and so you should be, forget everything else. Past is past.

  2. If they should Focus on jesus alone, it will give others space to operate. I’m confident we are taking the whole three points away from them. I’m happy no key injury concern. BOU 0 : 4 ARS. COYG.

  3. Jesus is among the top best strikers in the world currently.
    I tip him to bag in a couple more braces and hat tricks and will be a serious contender for the golden boot.

    1. Perfectly agree. His greatest attribute is his belief in himself, a great source of inspiration for his team mates. With such a winning mentality, half the job is done. I see him sizing up with the best strikers in the PL especially if he stays fit.
