Paul Merson has backed Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus to make an impact for Mikel Arteta’s side against Sean Dyche’s Everton next weekend.
Everton will face Arsenal in the Premier League at Goodison Park this weekend and Gabriel Jesus could be there.
The Brazil international striker has had injury problems in the early weeks of the new season, but the £265,000-a-week (Spotrac) Star is now fully fit.
The 26-year-old has made two appearances as a substitute in the Premier League for Arsenal so far this season.
In those 15 minutes, Jesus scored a goal.
Gabriel Jesus backed the club to make an impression at Arsenal
Former Arsenal star and Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson believes Jesus’ return to full fitness is a huge boost for the Gunners.
Mikel Arteta’s side will be in the UEFA Champions League next week, taking on Tottenham Hotspur in the north London derby on September 24.
While predicting a 2-0 win for Arsenal against Everton, Merson wrote SportsKeeda: “Arsenal have had their share of problems in recent weeks, but Gabriel Jesus’ return to full fitness is a massive boost.”
“With UEFA Champions League football approaching, they need timely support from all squad members to compete on all fronts.”
Gabriel Jesus is a great player for Arsenal
Arsenal have done well in the first few weeks of the new season without Gabriel Jesus in the starting lineup.
Imagine how good Arsenal would be if Jesus was a regular starter and at his best.
Although the 26-year-old is not one of the most prolific strikers in the world, he is a very mobile striker who takes up very good positions, gets others going, has pace, can dribble past opposing players and is perfect for the complicated attacking plays from Arsenal.
Arsenal are aiming to win the Premier League title this season and also want to make a big impact in the UEFA Champions League.
Jesus has played 187 Premier League games so far in his career.
The striker has scored 70 goals and provided 35 assists in these games.
