Sky Sports pundits, Garry Neville and Jamie Carragher, have lauded Gabriel Jesus after the striker’s impressive display in Arsenal’s Premier League 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Friday.
Neville and Carragher said Jesus was absolutely brilliant and sensational for Arsenal against Crystal Palace.
Jesus, who joined Arsenal from Manchester City this summer, was impressive for the Gunners as two goals from Gabriel Martinelli and Marc Guehi (own goal) gave Arsenal the victory at Selhurst Park.
Speaking during their post-match analysis, Neville, a former Manchester United captain, said, “Arsenal were absolutely electric up front in the first five or 10 minutes. You were just thinking “wow”, watching Jesus’.
“We saw glimpses of it at Manchester City, but we were watching him tonight and it was magical. The runs he was making were absolutely brilliant. Jesus just looked a level above.”
On his part, Carragher, a Liverpool legend, added: “Jesus was excellent, he really was. He was so sharp, he was just electric.
“He did one run and I just couldn’t believe it. I was so glad I was not playing against him. He was sensational in that first half.”
