Gabriel Jesus “changed Arsenal’s world last season,” says Arteta.

Gabriel Jesus “changed Arsenal’s world last season,” says Arteta.

After moving to Arsenal from Manchester City last summer, Mikel Arteta claimed that Gabriel Jesus “changed our world” and backed the forward to regain his best form.

Jesus arrived in a £45 million deal, revitalizing the Arsenal attack as they launched an unexpected title challenge before falling five points short of Manchester City.

Jesus missed more than three months of action after suffering a knee injury while representing Brazil at the World Cup in Qatar in December.

His start of the 2023–24 season was also delayed after he underwent a second minor surgery.

However, he is vying to start Sunday’s Premier League trip to Everton after scoring as a late substitute in Arsenal’s 3-1 victory over Manchester United before the international break.

It was his 12th goal in 35 appearances for the club.

According to Arteta, “If you look at the last six or seven months for Gabi, with the long-term injury he had and the amount of football he missed, then he came back in preseason and he started to get his rhythm back — and then he had another injury, another surgery.”.

“As a result, we must strengthen him. He is an outstanding athlete who is crucial to our team.

Our world was altered by him last season.

It was obvious to everyone. He will play a significant role for us.

“I believe he gave opponents a different energy, a different belief, a different threat, and a different fear. And he performed it in a very natural manner. He was a significant factor in our last season’s progress.”.

Jesus is a player who “creates chaos,” according to Arteta, who coached Jesus for three years at City under Pep Guardiola.

Arteta continued, “In certain areas of the pitch, I love it.

I detest it in other contexts.

Therefore, that’s where you create the chaos.

He obviously attracts a lot of attention from opponents with the way he plays and makes room for others.

That’s a significant trait of his.

It was a no-brainer for us to sign a player who is well-known, successful in the league, and who wants to join us for the right reasons.

And it was clear right away how much of an effect he had on the group.”.
