Arsenal and Manchester City Extend Their Perfect Premier League Starts

Arsenal and Manchester City

Gabriel Jesus scored his first goal for Arsenal in a 4-2 victory against Leicester on Saturday, while Manchester City sailed to a menacing 4-0 victory over Bournemouth.

Gabriel Jesus scored his firs

On Saturday, Manchester City cruised to a convincing 4-0 victory over Bournemouth while Arsenal defeated Leicester 4-2 with Gabriel Jesus scoring his first goal for the club. Due to the high heat in England, water breaks were required for every Premier League game this past weekend. However, at the Etihad, it was City who were on fire as promoted Bournemouth were soundly trounced. The Norwegian showed he had more to contribute than just goals by using his strength to slide Ilkay Gundogan in for the game’s opening goal despite the fact that his home debut finished in a scoreless draw.

Before Phil Foden made it 3-0 just before halftime, Kevin De Bruyne grabbed center stage with a spectacular finish with the outside of his right foot to find the far corner.

After the break, City slowed down, but 11 minutes from time, Jefferson Lerma assisted himself into the goal, giving City a two-goal advantage.

Jesus shines

Haaland was acquired in part to compensate for Jesus’ departure for City, and the Brazilian forward is already looking like a steal for the Gunners after making his home debut by contributing to two goals and two assists to maintain Arsenal’s unbeaten start.

Jesus was frequently deployed in wide areas by City manager Pep Guardiola in recent seasons; however, he was brought to Arsenal to play as a number nine in order to secure a spot at the World Cup later this year with consistent games as a center-forward.

The 25-year-old showed off his eye for goal by skillfully chipping over Danny Ward to breach Leicester’s defense, and he scored another goal by heading in a corner at the back post.

By scoring on their own goal, William Saliba handed Leicester a lead against the odds.

However, the Foxes swiftly dashed that dream when Jesus set up Granit Xhaka to score by slotting home after Ward sent a straightforward cross into the area.

James Maddison’s shot slid under Aaron Ramsdale at the opposite end, resulting in yet another goalkeeping blunder that allowed Leicester to score.

Only at can you listen to the most recent music.
Gabriel Martinelli shot into the far corner before Jesus hit the post with the chance to complete his hat-trick, but Arsenal once more recovered quickly to escape a tense conclusion.
