Craig Burnley was taken aback by Gabriel Jesus’ strength. He insists Gabriel Jesus is not the biggest, but he uses his body wisely.

Jesus has been on fire since moving to the Emirates from the Etihad. He currently has four goals and three assists in seven league games for the club.

Jesus scored in Arsenal’s win over Brentford. Many have praised his ability to compete with combative defenders, the most recent being Burley.

He told ESPN FC:

“They (Arsenal) have recruited well, they’ve got good players in there.“They’ve got a striker who has got great movement. He’s physical, I don’t think people realise how physical Gabriel Jesus is.

“He uses his body, uses that frame, he’s not the biggest, but he uses it brilliantly.“They’ve got so many different facets to the game at the moment. If you’re an Arsenal fan, you’ve got to be enjoying football with some backbone to it.”
