Ray Parlour compares Arsenal man to Kevin de Bruyne

Former Arsenal man Ray Parlour is impressed by the contributions of Gabriel Jesus and reveals he is to Arsenal what Kevin de Bruyne is to Manchester City.

Jesus joined the Gunners from the Premier League champions in the last transfer window and has helped them to move above City in the league standings this term.

He does not score many goals. However, the Brazilian can be influential in games and creates many problems for opposing defenders.

This frees up his other teammates to score and helps Arsenal to keep winning.

His impact on their games is essential, and Parlour compares it to what De Bruyne does at City.

He tells Express Sports:

“It all comes down to what they win and Jesus was a different sort of player for them.

“He wasn’t the main man, always had other players around him like Aguero and De Bruyne. But at Arsenal now he’s such an important player.

“He’s probably such as important to them as De Bruyne and Aguero were to City.

“I think he’s really took that on his shoulders and really enjoys being the main man. He knows he’s going to be the main man, playing every week.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Jesus has been a superb signing and it is hard not to consider him one of our best players.

Whatever success we achieve at the end of this season, he will be one of our heroes.

Hopefully, he will return from the World Cup fit enough to continue impressing us in the second half of this season.

  1. Can not fault him so far ,he really as given us something different with his energy.
    Would be nice to have something different on the bench though .

  2. As Gabriel Jesus goals scoring for Arsenal has deserted him in recent Gunners games in all competitions. More especially in the Epl. Hence, he has earnestly turned to become the Arsenal workaholic in games to consequently remains very relevant in games for Arsenal so far this season’s campaign as they look to charge forward to win the Premier League title this term.
    But I am not about to suggest that, Arsenal should bid for the signing of the Ecuadorian striker Edeer Valencia. Who today’s evening at the World Cup scored twice to give Ecuador a 2-0 match win over the host nation Qarta in a World Cup match opener.
    Don’t mind me as I am just making a joke. Notwithstanding anyway. But I think as the World Cup games playing pans on, many top quality goals scoring strikers who can score goals regularly at the top level of the game could emerged for Arsenal to take a close look at them for a possible signing of one the striker out the many who have emerged.
    But isn’t it ingenious of Mikel Arteta to think of arranging two friendly matches: Leon (h1 and Milan (a1? For those Gunners who were not called up to participate for their countries in the ongoing World Cup matches? So as to be sharp shapes and ready to take on the opponent teams when the PL resumed after the World Cup break. More so, as it is envisaged that most of the regular Arsenal senior team game starting Gunners will be given extended break to rest after their participation in the WC has ended.
    But because they wouldn’t want to see their team, Arsenal slip up down from their topping the League before the World Cup break. They may decline accepting any extended break to rest. As they may immediately report to duty for Arsenal. And start playing. joining forces together with the rest Gunners to continue to push for the title win this season. So as to see that they always remain on top of the table to achieve their set target of to win the Premier League title this season unfailingly..

  3. Am please with Gabriel Jesus performance, but the entire Brazilian contingent at Arsenal argues a strong case for Edu to directly dip back into the Capeonatp Brasilero Serie A
