After Gabriel Jesus, a newly signed player for Arsenal, scored in a friendly match against Everton and helped his team win 2-0, manager Mikel Arteta commented that Jesus “creates havoc.”
The new player who was signed for £45 million kept up his good preseason form by scoring a goal from a corner kick in the 33rd minute at the M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.
Jesus, who scored twice against Nuremberg earlier this month, contributed to Arsenal’s second goal, which was scored by Bukayo Saka.
According to Arteta, doubt is created by him, and he is constantly looking over your shoulder.
“Because he poses a legitimate risk, we should keep an eye on him. He can play a variety of positions, but certainly the one in which we would like to see the most growth from him is at the nine spot.”
In the next week, Arsenal will compete in Orlando against Orlando City and Chelsea.
At the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Chelsea kicked off their pre-season with a victory over Club America by a score of 2-1. Their opponent was from Mexico.
Timo Werner scored the game-winning goal for Chelsea in the 55th minute when his original shot was stopped by a teammate, Michy Batshuayi, and the rebound was put away by Werner.
Reece James played a blind backpass for Club America, and it was Marcus Bettinelli who was able to miss it. As a result, Club America was able to tie the game.
After deflecting the ball away from a defender and then looping it in from 20 yards out, Mason Mount scored an outstanding goal that proved to be the game-winning one with seven minutes left to play.
While Chelsea will play Charlotte FC away in North Carolina on Wednesday before taking on Arsenal on Saturday, Club America will travel to Houston to take on the defending Premier League winners, Manchester City, on Wednesday.
In Brisbane, Aston Villa prevailed over Leeds United by a score of 1-0 thanks to a penalty kick scored by substitute Danny Ings in the second half.
Illan Meslier made a penalty kick save on Philippe Coutinho and then blocked the rebound after a new signing for Leeds. In the first half, Tyler Adams was called for handball, but Ings did not make a mistake after Leif Davis’ handball.
Only 11 minutes after coming on as a substitute, the forward for Leeds, Archie Gray, had to be carried off the field on a stretcher.
The challenge that resulted in John McGinn receiving a yellow card resulted in the injury of a 16-year-old boy who is the son of a former striker for Leeds named Andy Gray and the great-nephew of Leeds icon Eddie Gray.
Jesse Marsch, the head coach for Leeds, speculated that his player had suffered an ankle strain. “We really hope he’s all right.”
