Gabriel Jesus was lauded for his great performance in Arsenal’s 2-1 Champions League victory over Sevilla, in which he scored and assisted. His contributions distinguished him as one of Arsenal’s top players in the game.
However, analyst Scott Minto had a different stance. Minto thought that, while several Arsenal players put in good performances, Declan Rice was the standout performer who contributed heavily to the victory.
According to Minto, Rice’s performance was particularly impressive, despite the fact that several players on the club performed well in the match against Sevilla.
On the TalkSport Premier League All Access Podcast, he stated:
“I thought Declan Rice was superb, everyone talks about Jesus, but I thought Declan Rice was just, they wouldn’t have won the game without him, it was a fantastic performance.”
Rice was great in the match against Sevilla as well, but Jesus was superb and without his goal contributions, we wouldn’t have had a chance to win that game.
Jesus will miss the next few games. Hopefully, Rice will add some more goals to his game.
