After Bukayo Saka’s early penalty, Gabriel Jesus scored twice with skill,
and the England star added a third to make it 4-0 before halftime.
Arsenal finished off their preseason campaign with a brutal 6-0 victory against La Liga powerhouse Sevilla in the Emirates Cup final in North London.
With four goals inside the opening 20 minutes as Mikel Arteta’s hosts ran wild,
the Gunners made it six wins in six games in front of their home crowd.
Watch Gabriel Jesus and Arsenal enormous goals!!
After the break, the home team attempted to continue where they had left off. Another poachers goal from Jesus gave him a hat trick,
and replacement Eddie Nketiah sealed the victory in the closing seconds.
Triple-honor hero Arsenal fans are dreaming about Jesus.
Jesus decided to go from Manchester to London this summer,
and he has had a great start to life as an Arsenal player.
A hat trick on his home debut highlights why the Gunners fought to bring him to the Emirates Stadium.
Seven goals in five preseason games show his readiness for the 2022–23 season.
With Saka, Martinelli, and Emile Smith-Rowe as part of his dynamic offensive lineup,
Arteta has created a formidable squad, but Jesus can bring the ruthless expertise required to mount a Champions League challenge in the near future.
The Brazilian will be confident of getting things going as Arteta looks to replace Pierre-Emerick
Aubameyang after failing to score over 10 Premier League goals in a season since 2019–20.
Saka won’t turn 21 until September,
but his recent performances have solidified his position as a key member of Arteta’s team, and a starting slot is now a given.
He may make the difference for Arsenal this year because of his ability to motivate the squad, score important goals, and growing maturity.
Aubameyang and Lacazette’s departures have created a void for a penalty taker at the club,
and his confident conversion against Sevilla suggests he will be Arsenal’s new man from the spot, less than a year after his missed opportunity for England in the Euro 2020 final.
Prior to the start of the Emirates Cup final,
Arsenal announced their choice to make Odegaard their new permanent club captain.
This was a significant act of faith on Arteta’s part.
Due to Aubmeyang’s departure,
Arteta’s young team will be skippered by a Norwegian in 2022–2023.
Odegaard has demonstrated a genuine career renaissance at Arsenal despite having Granit Xhaka and
Thomas Partey playing beside him in midfield. His energy and composure on the ball will play a crucial role in his captaincy.
During the first half of their Emirates Cup match against Sevilla on Saturday in north London,
Arsenal completely outplayed Sevilla. Bukayo Saka scored the game’s first goal from the penalty spot after Karim Rekik fouled him,
and the in-form Gabriel Jesus added two more goals in the next 60 seconds.
After a combination of unrelenting high pressing and dreadful performance from Yassine Bounou, the current LaLiga goalkeeper of the year,
Saka scored again to make it four goals in only nine minutes. Sevilla managed to trail Mikel Arteta’s team by only 4-0 at the break, but the score should and could have been much worse as the Brazilian combo of Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli in particular looked outstanding.
After Gabriel‘s attempt was blocked off the line late in the game,
Jesus went on to record a hat-trick on his home debut, adding insult to injury for a shell-shocked Sevilla who had fallen far behind Arsenal in their preseason preparations. As Martinelli had selflessly set up Eddie Nketiah two minutes from time,
it was left to the in-form Arsenal to lay down a marker ahead of their Premier League debut at Crystal Palace on Friday night. Check out Standard Sport’s coverage of the Emirates Cup below!
As impressive Arsenal defeated Sevilla 6-0 to win the Emirates Cup and raise anticipation and excitement for the upcoming Premier League season, Gabriel Jesus scored a hat-trick in his home debut.
On an emotional day when heartfelt tributes were given to the late Terry Neill and Jose Antonio Reyes, the Gunners’ new No. 9,
a £45 million summer acquisition from Manchester City,
increased his preseason goal total in red and white to a tremendously remarkable seven in five games.
Devastating Arsenal destroyed their overconfident Spanish opponents in a dreadfully one-sided first half,
with Bukayo Saka and Jesus both scoring braces in the span of only nine minutes. The hosts were well behind their guests in terms of preseason preparations.
Saka kicked off the early barrage from the penalty spot after Karim Rekik shoved him down in the area, and Jesus followed suit from close range after combining with Granit Xhaka down the left-hand wing.
After being set up by his lightning-quick compatriot Gabriel Martinelli, Jesus scored his second goal in as many minutes. He slid in at the back post.
On Saturday, Arsenal destroyed Sevilla 6-0 at the Emirates to maintain their impressive preseason success in front of their own supporters.
The crowd was delighted by Gabriel Jesus’ hat-trick, Bukayo Saka’s brace, and Eddie Nketiah’s late goal. The newcomer and two fan favourites all contributed to a strong afternoon’s work. Express Sport breaks into five lessons from the Gunners’ most recent preseason practise as the competitive season draws near.
With the defeat to Brentford at London Colney behind them,
Arsenal supporters have plenty of encouraging signs to reflect on lately. Before Sevilla arrived in north London,
Nurnberg, Everton, Orlando City, and Chelsea were all discarded, and the Spanish team took the brunt of the Arsenal’s momentum.
Jesus is ready to make an immediate impact as a marquee summer signing. By scoring his first goals at the Emirates while wearing an Arsenal jersey, Gabriel Jesus treated the crowd to a genuine pleasure. Before breaking Granit Xhaka’s neck to enter the box and meet the cross for a tap-in, the Brazilian initiated the move for his first goal by feeding the Swiss player. About a minute later, following a brief free kick, he pounced onto Gabriel Martinelli’s whipped ball in, and he acted quickly to score his third with a true poacher’s strike from a corner.
