Gabriel Jesus scores twice in under fifteen minutes in second Arsenal appearance

With Gameweek 2 of the 2022/23 Premier League season well underway, the world has been waiting just over a week to see Gabriel Jesus score his first Arsenal goal. Yet the Brazilian kept everyone waiting nearly 22 minutes into their second game before delighting them all with not one but two goals.

Next Leicester cityfrom the brilliant 2-2 draw against Brentford, many expected the Foxes to strike Arsenal into the ground in response, but the first 20 minutes had been all about Arsenal. The Gunners, on their own turf, have enjoyed the pitch so far, with the North Londoners thriving in the first half of their second Premier League game. But despite dominating the shots on goalscoring stats (5-1), the hosts are yet to find the net.

All that, however, changed the moment Gabriel Jesus received the ball down the left flank and despite six defenders in front of him, the pitch believed something special was about to happen. And boy was he right because, after a nice one-two-one with Gabriel Martinelli, Jesus simply collected the ball inside the box and produced a delightful lifted finish to find the top left corner. Danny Ward didn’t stand a chance as the Leicester City goalkeeper simply watched the ball fly past him.

However, that was not enough for the man who many considered not good enough to Manchester City because less than ten minutes later and Jesus appeared at the back post to nod a corner after Jamie Vardy nodded further down the line at the near post. Danny Ward was once again left watching the Emirates Stadium explode with joy.
