Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta noted the new connection between Gabriel Jesus and Martin Odegaard after the Gunners battered Sevilla 6-0 at the Emirates on Saturday. The Brazilian netted a hat-trick to continue his pre-season rampage, and the latter, who has just been named as the club’s new captain, put together an accomplished display. 

There was plenty for fans to sink their teeth into during Arsenal’s latest pre-season test. Jesus once again made the headlines by netting twice in the opening 20 minutes as the home side raced into a 4-0 lead, and once more after the break to complete his treble. 

Odegaard, fresh from being unveiled as Arsenal’s new captain, did not get on the scoresheet but led by example with a confident display. His delicate ball over the top to Bukayo Saka led to a penalty which set the Gunners on their way, with another Saka strike and a late Eddie Nketiah goal completing the scoring. 

After the game, Arteta said: “Gaby [Jesus] makes Odegaard better. We needed someone to make him look better. The connection is there.”
