Arsenal fans rave about Gabriel Jesus again for role in Martin Odegaards opener

Arsenal fans were left raving over Gabriel Jesus again after his excellent build-up play led to Martin Odegaard's opener against Bournemouth.

Fresh off his two goals and two assists against Leicester last week, Jesus played a major role as the Gunners took the lead inside five minutes at the Vitality Stadium. The £45million striker held off his defender to take down a looping ball before dancing past three more.

He fed Gabriel Martinelli, whose shot was saved but the rebound was then turned home by Odegaard. Commentator Alan Smith said: "That Jesus bit of work was absolutely sensational. You won't see a better example of centre-forward play than this."

And supporters watching on at home were just as impressed. One tweeted: "What a player Jesus is, what a signing man." Another wrote: "Nah Jesus is a serious baller."

"Jesus is such a special player," commented a third. While one argued: "Jesus has to signing of the season in all of Europe honestly."

Others drew comparisons to former Arsenal stars, with one posting: "Gabriel Jesus is [Thierry] Henry reborn." Another said: "Great start, Jesus has those early Alexis [Sanchez] vibes."

Is Jesus the signing of the summer and if not, who is? Let us know in the comments section.

One even went as so far as to say: "He's the best player of all time." The goal left another rejoicing: "We’ve finally got a real Brazilian. Tears in my eyes."

Jesus then went on to assist Odegaard and Arsenal's second of the match just six minutes later. Not only did that have the Gunners faithful cheering again, but also fantasy football players.

He's now in a record-breaking 80% of teams on the official Premier League game, a feat no player has ever achieved before. And his assist secured another three points to add to his 21 points so far.
