Analysing Gabriel Jesus' excellent performance against Leicester City

It has been an excellent start to life at Arsenal for Gabriel Jesus. The Brazilian delivered a very good opening day performance against Crystal Palace without getting a goal or assist. However, he showed his quality in the final third on Saturday. He created a lot of problems for Leicester City and a lot of Arsenal's attacks went through their new signing.

Fantasy Premier League Insight – GW12 Post International Break preparation

With the international break (qualifiers) coming to an end and Premier League back at the weekend, let's review GW11 before we look forward to GW12.

He cost the Blues a whopping £27 million, which a few years ago may have raised some eyebrows considering he's still a teenager but he shouldn't be intimidated by the price in today's market. Instead, the fee represents a relatively fair price for one of South America's most prized young talents and his 10-minute cameo against Tottenham provided the Etihad with a glimpse …
