Arsenal fans are quickly falling in love with Gabriel Jesus, who has been on fire in pre-season. The former Manchester City striker has four goals and an assist in his four appearances so far, the latest giving the Gunners the lead against Chelsea.

Jesus was proving a menace once again, and the Chelsea players responded by kicking him about a bit.

Mikel Arteta eventually decided to withdraw the striker, suggesting to the media that they didn’t want to gamble on his fitness.

“He got a knock on his quad in the first half and he wasn’t feeling very comfortable,” Arteta said. “We decided not to take any risks today.”

Arsenal’s tour of the U.S. is now over, so Jesus will have a week to get some rest and assess his knock before their next friendly.

The Brazilian will certainly hope to be fit for that game, as it would be his first opportunity to play for Arsenal in front of the Emirates Stadium crowd.

Arsenal take on Sevilla in this year’s Emirates Cup on Saturday, July 30th at 12:30 BST.

After that, the Premier League season begins with a trip to face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. Arsenal and Jesus will want to keep up their current momentum ahead of that fixture.
