Gabriel Jesus scored twice, while Granit Xhaka and Gabriel Martinelli grabbed a goal each to help Arsenal beat Leicester 4-2 at the Emirates this afternoon.
In truth, the 2 for Leicester flatters them, while the 4 for Arsenal doesn’t really signify the dominance Mikel Arteta’s side had during this game. William Saliba’s own goal might have added some nerves, but Arsenal responded straight away. Similarly, James Maddison making it 3-2 could have produced a nervous last 15 minutes, but Martinelli added breathing space with a superb goal.
Some of the football Arsenal played was intricate and devastating; Jesus has brought a new dimension to the team’s forward play and should have had a hat-trick; and the Gunners were more than worthy of the 3 points on the day.
Here’s how the players rated this afternoon.
