Gabriel Jesus

Gabriel rejoined his old manager when he signed for Arsenal from Manchester City. He is an experienced striker having won four Premier League titles, one FA Cup, three league cups as well as playing in the final of the 20/21 Champions League.

I adore arsenal and it's my favorite premier league club. Since my childhood I found myself into Arsenal's obsession. My favorite players are Terry Henry, Van Persie and Özil. I have been rewatching Arsenal vs Barcelona that ended up with a glorious victory 2-1 for 'us' . I have a good faith that we are going to be Champions this year

Though Arsenal is chasing the title this year, it will be hard to eliminate them from the FA Cup race. They can do it third time in a row, it is not impossible. But it is hard, there's no doubt about it.

I like Arsenal because has a sense of playing different from all others teams. Even they are not ready to win a title and the situation on Champions League stage is not the best still their game give me impressions. Arsenal has the best striker on Premier like Giroud, Sanchez, Chamberlein or Walcott and I can't make separation but can say that walcott is my favourite player because play well and is talented
I have seen last years against Bayern Munchen.
For this year my prediction is for a runner-up on Premier League but not on the top 16 teams on Champions League
