Arsenal star, Gabriel Martinelli has described his club team-mate Gabriel Jesus as a ‘beast.’

This was after Mikel Arteta’s side extended their perfect start to the season with a 2-1 win over Aston Villa on Wednesday.

Jesus completed a sensational move from Manchester City earlier in the summer and has made a superb start to his career at the Emirates.

The Brazilian scored his third goal of the season on Wednesday when he put the Gunners ahead against Villa.

Villa equalised directly from Douglas Luiz’s corner but Arsenal, who are growing in confidence, quickly restored their lead through Martinelli.

“He makes our job so much easier. He is a beast,,” Martinelli told BT Sport, talking about Jesus.

“He is everywhere on the pitch, we are so happy with him and we are lucky to have him here.”
