Arsenal forward Gabriel Jesus has praised his teammate for adapting to the demands of the game against Manchester City on Sunday. 

Arsenal secured a point against the champions in a goalless draw at the Etihad Stadium and the result halted their streak of eight consecutive defeats away at City, marking a significant improvement in their performance against Pep Guardiola’s side.

Speaking after the match, Jesus commended his teammates for their adaptation and change in approach. The Brazilian striker highlighted the importance of altering their body language to face big opponents like Manchester City and stressed the difficulty of playing against such a strong side.

“We tried to win, I think we could have won,” said Jesus. “Maybe we played a different game to what we normally do, but sometimes football is like this. Each game is different.”

Reflecting on previous encounters with City, Jesus noted the mistakes made in past matches and praised the team for their improved performance this time around. He acknowledged the need to suffer defensively against a possession-based team like City and credited Arsenal for executing their defensive strategy effectively.


“It’s the Premier League, it’s a tough league and anything can happen,” Gabriel Jesus added. “It is only two points, the difference [with Liverpool], and then we have a very good goal difference. Everything counts at the end, but there are still a lot of games.”

Despite relinquishing their top spot in the league table to Liverpool, Arsenal remain in contention for the title race, trailing by just two points. With the Champions League also on the horizon, Jesus expressed optimism about the team’s prospects in the remainder of the season.

“We also have the Champions League. This is the most beautiful part of the season, you try everything to win titles.”

Arsenal’s resilient performance against Manchester City signals a positive development under Mikel Arteta, instilling confidence in their ability to compete at the highest level.
