Henry believes in Jesus.
Iconic Arsenal player Thierry Henry “hopes” that Gabriel Jesus disproves his theory following yet another brilliant Champions League performance. This season, the Brazilian has scored five goals, four of which have come in Europe.
Henry hopes that his assessment of Jesus’s goal threat in the Premier League is off. In his opinion, he does not present Arsenal with enough danger. “Gabriel Jesus is a very important player for us,” he said following the Gunners’ victory over Lens.
Paul Merson, who used to be an Arsenal player, has cautioned Mikel Arteta about playing Kai Havertz in the incorrect position. “Havertz is a confident player, and he is playing confidently right now,” he remarked following the victory over Lens.
He was, in my opinion, the best player on the field. He made the right passes, was graceful, and made the right choices. He is an excellent player. Despite not playing in the ideal position, he is still a very good player in my opinion.
Arteta talks candidly about Saka
Returning to the victory over Lens on Wednesday, Arteta showered Bukayo Saka with compliments after he too found the back of the net. In all competitions this season, Saka, 22, has tallied seven goals and ten assists. He also contributed an assist.
“That is a different edge to score ugly goals as well and be involved in this action that gives an advantage to your teammate and he did it as well against Burnley when he won that header for Leo Trossard], and that is a different kind of aggression that is good in this game and that is a really positive thing to see,” noted the manager of Arsenal.
