Gabriel Jesus said he had ‘a better all-round game’ than Harry Kane ahead of Arsenal’s clash with Tottenham

The Brazilian got off to a good start as an Arsenal player following his summer transfer from Manchester City, with four goals and three assists in the Premier League.

He played a crucial role in helping the Gunners sit top of the table after seven games in the season, a defeat at OId Trafford the only mistake in an otherwise incredibly impressive run from Mikel Arteta’s side.

Tottenham are just one point behind Arsenal and remain unbeaten in the league ahead of the North London derby this weekend, with performances from Jesus and Kane set to play a crucial role in the outcome of the clash at the Emirates.

Kane has been in fine form himself with six league goals, but while Johnson believes the England captain is the more clinical of the two forwards, he believes Jesus is the more complete player.

“I’m a big Jesus fan, but Kane is a good scorer,” Johnson told SafeBettingSites.

“The all-around game from Jesus is better, but if you have a goalscoring opportunity to win the game, I think Kane is the man.”

Spurs haven’t been entirely convincing this season despite their unbeaten league record, although they did latch on in front of goal against Leicester before the international break as Heung-min Son made a welcome return to the scoresheet .

The Gunners failed in their first big test of the season, against Manchester United, but the opportunity is there for a side to make a real statement this weekend with a win over their rivals.

“It would be a massive win for either team because both teams are performing very well and you have to show you’re at that level,” Johnson said.

“There are a lot of teams in the league that can reach a position near the top of the table, but that can be wrong, because it depends on who you played.

“They are now two clubs where they are both in good form, they are both hitting the top of the table and you are going to have to prove that you are the best at some point.”

He added: “This game is probably the biggest 50/50 of this season.”
