Football Player: Gabriel Jesus' 'contagious mentality' can inspire Arsenal this season


"He's an enormous talent, a player with contagious mentality" - Mikel Arteta on Gabriel Jesus; Arsenal remain "very active" in transfer market; watch Crystal Palace vs Arsenal live on Friday Night Football from 7pm live on Sky Sports Premier League


Mikel Arteta has been surprised by Gabriel Jesus' swift adaptation to life at Arsenal and is relishing harnessing the Brazilian's "contagious" mentality. The Gunners kick-off the new Premier League season away at Crystal Palace on Friday Night Football - live on Sky Sports - with Jesus expected to make his competitive debut for the club following his £45million transfer from champions Manchester City.


With Jesus shouldering the new-found burden of expectation his arrival in north London has generated, Arteta called for patience, but the manager insists the early signs are promising.



"When you bring in top players who are coming from top clubs where they have been extremely successful over the years, they are going to expect that expectation," Arteta said.


"The role Gabriel has here is going to be very different to the role he had at his previous club, that needs some adaptation and some time.


"He's done it fantastically well, we are surprised how quickly he has done it, but we have to share that responsibility.


"He's an enormous talent, a player with mentality that is so contagious, and he is going to give us a lot, but it is a team contribution at the end of the day."



Arteta's position at Arsenal came under intense scrutiny at the start of last season after newly-promoted Brentford inflicted the first of three defeats in their opening three Premier League outings. However, after a summer spending spree and 100 per cent record from five pre-season matches, the Spaniard insists preparations for this season will ensure the Gunners make the best possible start this time.


"It is different, everything that happened before that game [at Brentford] was pretty strange and unique, the preparation, the pre-season we had," he added.


"Now is different context, we are really excited, looking forward to the new season and will try and start in the best possible way. This is how we have with our preparation."

Asked whether his Arsenal team were finally in his image after the summer recruitment drive, Arteta added: "It's always been my team, these are our players and always we have had intentions to get the best out of them.


"It's true we have trimmed and changed the squad massively in the last two windows and you feel like now the players we have are more specific and better to the way we want to play."
