One of the most incredible things about the 2022-23 Premier League title race is that Arsenal. Top of the table under Mikel Arteta, rely on two ex- Manchester City players. like Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko as the backbone of the team’s title challenge.
Gabriel Jesus and Zinchenko joine Arsenal from the Etihad Stadium last summer for a combined fee of £75m, with the Brazil forward and Ukraine international. Helping to join forces to make “Cannons” have a chance to win the league for the first time since 2003.
Gabriel Jesus fills the role of the No. 9 striker, while Zinchenko fills the gap on the left flank. Including midfield in some games This makes Arteta ‘s team play more balanced. and is stronger than before
For Jesus, despite the unfortunate injury that he had to rest for more than 3 months. But now he is back to complete fitness. and it seems. The hot form of play will not disappear at all. While Zinchenko, who suffered a groin injury. And did not play in the last game that drew 2-2 with West Ham United, then played a very active off-field role in giving advice to other teammates.
At this time, Arteta’s Arsenal are facing a tough test after the last 2 games. They were unable to beat Liverpool and West Ham at all, despite having taken the lead first. The gurus began to see that “Cannon” had a chance to lose form until. It was eventually overtaken by Manchester City.
However, having experienced title contenders like Jesus and Zinchenko in that team.
It has a positive impact on the mental state of other Arsenal players as well. Because they both know that What should I do in stressful situations?
Jesus and Zinchenko are a great force in the dressing room. And their role throughout the past season was An important part in deciding whether the partisan “The Gunners” will be successful or failure
At the same time, Arsenal’s most obvious problem right now is a defensive game that can’t keep clean sheets in 4 consecutive games. Which is the main factor caused by the 22-year-old center back of the French national team, William Saliba . He has always been a key man. Injured, unable to help the team
In addition, the main player in the offensive game is Bukayo Saka, a young English winger. The form is in a serious decline after only one goal and two assists in the last eight games, including missing a penalty in the last game against West Ham.
When looking at major rivals like Pep Guardiola ‘s Manchester City, the Spanish boss The performance is in full swing after winning 10 games in all competitions, which forces Arsenal to return to their sanity as soon as possible. And players like Jesus and Zinchenko have to use their experience to their advantage.
If Arsenal beat Southampton in the next game They are 7 points ahead of Manchester City, but play more than 2 matches, which “The Blues” do not have a league game to compete. due to an FA Cup semi-final against Sheffield United.
Maybe the first race And having a lead point away may allow Arsenal to relieve some pressure before the game. Deciding the champion will travel to Manchester City on April 27, which could be a game that Jesus and Zinchenko showed. They also have enough quality to lead the team to a championship.
