Gabriel Jesus was energetic in Arsenal’s 3-1 loss to Manchester United. Arsenal had a five-game winning streak prior to the defeat. United are now fifth in the table with 12 points, while Arsenal are still first with 15 points.
The Brazilian has three goals in six games, but Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink believes Gabriel Jesus doesn’t get in enough scoring opportunities. In an interview with Sky Sports, he said:

He’s come in [and scored] three goals, made chances, made others around him play better. I’m still not convinced he will be 20 goals a season because if he was that then why did he not do that at Man City in a better team?
I think he had enough opportunities [at Man City]. He is not somebody that scores goals out and out and out. He’s somebody that loves scoring goals and likes to link up, he’s been brilliant at it, very strong, holding the ball up.
He’s got three goals in five matches – which is brilliant – but you expect him to score more goals. He’s a great signing.
