Ex Premier League player Alan Shearer believes Arsenal can still win the league with Gabriel Jesus as the main striker.
The Brazilian has been criticised by fans for overthinking in front of goal and failing to convert simple chances at times.
Alan Shearer speaking to football London said:
‘He’s not a goalscorer, he never has been. When you look at his numbers, he brings more to Arsenal’s game than goals, he’s got one in nine this season. That will improve and that has to improve.’
I’m not going to say they can’t win the league without having a 20-goal striker because (Manchester) City did it with (Ilkay) Gundogan when he got 14 or 15 I think.’
‘Chelsea did it with (Frank) Lampard when he had 14 or 15.So, it can be done but this Arsenal team, I mean other players are going to have to chip in as they’re doing for them to maintain their challenge and indeed if they are going to go on and win in.’
