Olivier Boscagli of PSV Eindhoven, a star player, was unable to contain Gabriel Jesus as Arsenal won 4-0.
In response to Arsenal’s victory in the Champions League, the Dutch media has begun praising Jesus.
PSV entered the game against Arsenal on Wednesday in fairly good shape, but Arsenal easily defeated them.
Leandro Trossard and Jesus added a second and third goal for Arsenal before halftime to make the score 3-0.
Martin Odegaard added the last goal, giving Arsenal the perfect start to their Champions League comeback.
The Dutch press lauds Gabriel Jesus
Mikel Arteta made the decision to substitute Jesus for Eddie Nketiah in the top position.
Nketiah had been directing the Arsenal assault in the early going because Jesus had been injured to begin the season.
With his goal and overall performance, the Brazilian has now made a statement and received plaudits from the Dutch media.
According to Voetbal Primeur, Olivier Boscagli, a defender for PSV, found Jesus to be a great “nuisance” throughout last night’s match.
They asserted that Jesus put Boscagli “constantly in doubt” about whether to pursue him or the midfielders who were moving into the empty space that Jesus had created.
Since joining Arsenal for £45 million from Manchester City, Jesus has added that sort of talent to the team’s assault, and it appeared like Boscagli couldn’t handle it.
Jesus is now able to contribute for Arsenal.
After recovering from yet another injury, Jesus will now be expected to step up for Arsenal.
The 26-year-old impressed in his first start of the season after scoring against Manchester United earlier this month off the bench.
Nketiah has been doing well, but he doesn’t quite possess Jesus’ exceptional movement in the back, pulling wide, and coming deep.
Jesus has staked his claim for a position in the North London derby, so Arteta will have a difficult decision to make over who to start up top against Tottenham this Saturday.
