Gabriel Jesus stole the show with two dazzling goal contributions in Arsenal’s 2-1 win at Sevilla in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The Brazilian led a fantastic counter, turning three Sevilla defenders before playing Gabriel Martinelli through to make it 1-0 just before half time.

And within 10 minutes of the restart, Jesus was at it again, dancing into the box and curling the ball over the keeper from a tight angle to make it 2-0.

It was, what has become, a typical Arsenal performance this season for much of the game, controlling the play and limiting the opposition to very few chances, while the Gunners made a few good opportunities in the process.

But a 58th-minute corner piled the pressure on for a nervy finish.

The Gunners held firm with a robust display, helped by Mikel Arteta’s defensive subtitutions to shut down dangerous chances at the end of the game.

While there were still some nervy moments, it was a good show of character to close things out and take Arsenal to the top of the group.

It built on a resilient, yet somewhat frustrating, display against Chelsea at the weekend, coming back from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Stamford Bridge.

Declan Rice began the game in the left central midfield role but Chelsea’s midfield overload made it difficult for him to influence the play for much of the game

However, it was Rice who kickstarted the comeback, intercepting a poor pass from Chelsea keeper Robert Sanchez and bending the ball around the defenders and into the empty net from over 35 yards

His belief and aggression were infectious and pushed the team on to get a late point thanks to substitute Leandro Trossard’s equaliser.

It was a game that had a bit of everything, much of which Arsenal struggled to deal with for long periods, but fighting back to claim a point was a good show of resilience and the team can hopefully take some confidence from that, especially after building on it against Sevilla.

Arsenal now face Sheffield United at the Emirates at 3pm on Saturday, with the Blades rock bottom of the Premier League with just a point to their name so far.
