Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta buzzes over ‘very special’ Gunners star who causes ‘chaos’

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has praised ‘very special' Gunners star Gabriel Jesus, who caused ‘chaos' during their Premier League win over Leeds United this weekend.

The Brazilian forward scored the only goal of the game as the Gunners secured a 1-0 victory over the newly-promoted side at the Emirates Stadium, and Arteta believes Jesus' performance was instrumental in the result.

Speaking after the match, Arteta said: “He’s a very special player and he can cause chaos. He’s got that quality of creating something out of nothing with his speed and quickness in the box.

“He’s been really impressive and he’s developing very well in terms of his understanding of our game-plan and what we want to do. The goal was very important for us and it was very well taken.”

Jesus has now scored five goals in his last eight Premier League appearances, and has been hailed as a key player in Arsenal's recent resurgence.

And Arteta is delighted with the forward's recent performances and believes he's getting better and better with each game.

He added: “He’s a young player who is still learning, but he’s a great talent and he’s getting better and better.”

The Gunners are now unbeaten in their last four Premier League games and have moved up to 11th in the table, just five points off the top four.

Arteta will be hoping Jesus can continue his impressive form and help fire Arsenal into the Champions League places.
