ARSENAL fans have been blown away by Gabriel Jesus after his sensational third goal for the club against Everton.
The Brazilian was on target again as Mikel Arteta’s side beat the Toffees 2-0, finding the net alongside Bukayo Saka.

Jesus’ goal was what captured the attention of supporters though, as he showed immense composure to match his devastating finishing.
The 25-year-old brought down a Cedric Soares corner from the left with a touch reminiscent of Zinedine Zidane, despite pressure from oncoming Toffees defenders.
He then showed supporters exactly what he can do in front of goal, powerfully driving home to give his side he lead.
Excited fans have taken to Twitter to praise their new star.
One wrote: “A proper striker goal from Jesus.
“A Ronaldo instinct, Zidane touch and De Bruyne shot.”
Another described the forward as ‘ridiculous’, praising the control show to create the chance.
One said he ‘means business’ now he is ready to become a regular starter at the Emirates.
A further Twitter user claimed Jesus is going to be a ‘beast’ at Arsenal, with his impressive start not falling short of attention.
Arsenal fans in general will be far more pleased with last night’s work than in their opening friendly, as they were solid throughout in a 2-0 victory over Frank Lampard’s Everton.
The defensive assuredness is a polar opposite to that in their opening friendly with Nuremberg, where Jesus’ second half brace saw them run out 5-3 winners.
Dream Team users are similarly as excited over the prospects of Jesus, with the striker set to be one of the most popular players in the game.
He is likely to be part of the season’s curtain-raiser at the start of August, as Arsenal get ready to travel to Crystal Palace for a challenging opening day fixture.
