Gabriel Jesus scores delicious chip as Arsenal beat Chelsea in pre-season friendly but new striker scares Mikel Arteta


Gabriel Jesus continues to impress during pre-season at Arsenal by scoring a delicious chip in their 4-0 thrashing against Chelsea.

Jesus has scored four goals in as many games for the Gunners since his £45million move from Man City.

Jesus has been in fine form for Arsenal in pre-season

He helped them maintain their pre-season record at 100% as they embarrassed their Premier League rivals.

Jesus struck just 15 minutes into the Florida Cup final with a deft chip over Edouard Mendy.

Arsenal struck again 10 minutes before the break when Gabriel Martinelli picked up Martin Odegaard, who found the back of the net.

Bukayo Saka then added a third after Mendy prevented Martinelli and Granit Xhaka.

The rout was completed by Albert Sambi Lokonga with a goal in stoppage time.

There was a slight concern for Arsenal, however, as Jesus had to be taken off at half-time with a kick.

Manager Mikel Arteta didn’t want to risk the striker getting injured further.

He said: “He got hit in the first half in his quad, I think he was and it wasn’t very comfortable to go on and obviously we didn’t take any risks today. “

Arsenal have one final game of pre-season, a clash with Sevilla at the Emirates next Saturday, before kicking off their season against Crystal Palace on Friday August 5.
