“You can see how he was shamelessly exposed in the match against Aston villa due to his lack of pace and sluggishness, I won’t risk him again”- Arsenal legend Patrick Vierra angrily blasts Arsenal’s £60M player who was horribly bartered due to his lack of pace against Aston villa last night

“You can see how he was shamelessly exposed in the match against Aston villa due to his lack of pace and sluggishness, I won’t risk him again”- Arsenal legend Patrick Vierra angrily blasts Arsenal’s £60M player who was horribly bartered due to his lack of pace against Aston villa last night

In the aftermath of Arsenal’s defeat at Villa Park against Aston Villa, Steve Nicol, the former footballer, didn’t mince words in his critique of Gabriel Jesus.

This commentary unfolded on ESPN following a match where John McGinn’s first-half goal secured three crucial points for Villa, preventing Mikel Arteta’s side from reclaiming the top spot in the Premier League.

Despite Arsenal delivering a commendable performance, they fell short of converting opportunities into goals, leaving them unable to breach the back of the net consistently.

Emi Martinez, Villa’s goalkeeper, remained largely untested, leaving the Gunners somewhat disappointed with their offensive output.

While Gabriel Jesus showcased an outstanding performance in the midweek victory over Luton, contributing to multiple goals in a seven-goal thriller, his impact was notably subdued at Villa Park.

Steve Nicol, expressing his disappointment, remarked on ESPN that there were moments during the match where he had to remind himself that the Brazilian forward, aged 26, was even on the pitch.

Nicol emphasized the pressing need for a center forward in Arsenal’s lineup. Despite their dominance, especially in the second half, Jesus seemed conspicuously absent on the field.

Nicol went on to stress the significance of a complete team effort, asserting that winning the Premier League title is unattainable with a player contributing next to nothing.

He criticized Jesus for his lack of involvement and suggested that when facing a resolute defense, players must step up and produce, which Jesus failed to do, essentially disappearing during critical moments.

Gabriel Jesus, known for his ability to utilize space effectively and enhance the performance of teammates like Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli, fell short of expectations this season.

With just two goals in 11 top-flight games, his scoring rate raises concerns, particularly as Arsenal looks to contend for the league title.

The team heavily relies on attacking players, and Jesus’s current record might not be sufficient for a successful campaign under Mikel Arteta.

Acknowledging Jesus’s undeniable world-class quality and his prior game-changing contributions to the club, doubts linger about whether he possesses the goal-scoring prowess necessary to propel Arsenal to the pinnacle of the league this season.

As other attacking players like Martinelli and Martin Odegaard struggle for prolific form, the pressure on Jesus to deliver becomes even more pronounced. The question remains: Can Jesus provide the goals needed to secure Arsenal’s title ambitions?
