Congratulations to Gabriel Jesus, who has been voted by you as the Arsenal.com Player of the Month for August!
Our Brazilian danger man has immediately impressed in his first month in the Premier League as a Gunner. Gabby notched up three goals and three assists in just five games, helping us stroll to an unbeaten August and consolidate our position at the top of the league table.
He officially opened his account with us in our first home game of the season against Leicester City, with two goals, two assists, and an excellent performance in front of the Emirates faithful.
He was on the scoresheet once again in our tight contest with Aston Villa at the end of the month. This vital victory, courtesy of goals from our two Brazilian Gabriels, made it five wins out of five – our best start to a Premier League season since 2004/05.
Aside from goals, assists, and being a constant threat to opponents in and out of the penalty box, Gabby has won a staggering 44 duels across the pitch.
He edged out his fellow Brazilian Gabriel Martinelli who came second in the poll, voted by the users of Arsenal.com. There was less than 1 per cent separating Gabi and skipper Martin Odegaard in third place.
