The man on a mission, Gabriel Jesus marked his fourth league goal of the season with Vinicius style dance celebration as Arsenal secured a comfortable 3-0 victory over Brentford during their Premier League game on Sunday afternoon.
Mikel Arteta made three changes to his side that lost to Man United in their last Premier League game with Tierney, Vieira, and Partey replacing injured Oleksandr Zinchenko and Martin Odegaard, while Lokonga was dropped to the bench.
The Gunners were on top of their game throughout the first 45 minutes and quickly took the lead barely 17 minutes into the contest at Brentford Community Stadium, through Saliba from a corner.
As the visitors earned a corner on their right, Saka swings in the delivery and Saliba uses his head to direct the ball into the bottom right corner.
Despite facing away from the goal, the defender deftly directed it into the goal. Although Raya tried to pull the ball away, it has already gone too far.
11 minutes later, Jesus increased the score to 2-0 with a powerful header. In order to nod Xhaka’s precise left-footed lob into the upper left corner, the Brazilian pulled away from his defender and gave the header everything he had.
Jesus scored emphatically, but Xhaka’s pass was excellent and the Arsenal captain made it simple for his striker to smash it.
In a move to celebrate his goal, Gabriel Jesus showed off his dance moves as a tribute to Vinicius. The attacker made sure to express his gratitude to Granit Xhaka’s left foot for helping him score as well.
Gabriel Jesus’ game by numbers vs. Brentford:
92% pass accuracy

Four minutes into second half, the Gunners are up 3-0 after Fábio Vieira scored in his first Premier league start.
The Portuguese midfielder controlled Saka’s pass inside the area, glanced up, and curled a left-footed shot via the post into the bottom right corner.
Arsenal’s stellar start to the season is still going strong as they prepare to host Liverpool and Tottenham next, with a Europa League match in between.
With this outcome, Arsenal has a one-point advantage over City and Tottenham in the Premier League at the top of the table.
They currently appear strong and have scored in each of their seven league games this season. Brentford remains tenth despite losing.
