Gabriel Jesus of Arsenal has never lose any Premier League match he scores in from his days at Manchester City to date.
Arsenal fans will always pray that Gabriel Jesus should score in every Premier League match as the former Manchester City attacking midfielder joins the Gunners with an incredible Premier League record.
When he was at Manchester City, the Brazilian was severed from the stats, with the credit going to a solid and formidable Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
After he joined Arsenal in the summer, pundits argued that the integrity of the record was doomed to be assailed with ease given the pedigree of the team when juxtaposed with his old fortress at Etihad.
Gabriel Jesus’ incredible Premier League record
Gabriel Jesus joined the Premier League as a Manchester City player in 2016. He had played 167 matches, scoring 63 times and delivering 32 assists.
His 63 goals have come in 51 matches in which he has not lost any. Out of the 51 games, he had gathered 48 wins and 3 draws.
Since he spent a huge chunk of his football career at Manchester City, a significant fraction of this record was created at Manchester City.
Out of the 51 victorious games, 47 of these matches have been completed while at Manchester City, while only 4 games has been achieved at Arsenal.
Gabriel Jesus’ feat attracted the interest of pundits who were interested in how the Brazilian will sustain the record at Arsenal, a team considered more volatile when compared to a star-studded Manchester City squad.
Gabriel Jesus carries record to Arsenal
Gabriel Jesus joined Arsenal last summer and has turned into Mikel Arteta’s hit signing. Interestingly, he has continued to build on his astonishing record.
The 25-year-old Brazil international has witnessed a slight increase in the total number of games in which he has not tasted defeat after scoring.
At Manchester City, it was 47, but now, it has hit 51 matches and is still counting. The only loss Arsenal recorded this season was a 3-1 loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford. Interestingly, Gabriel Jesus did not find the back of the net in the game.
Gabriel Jesus opened his Premier League goal for Arsenal in the matchday two encounter against Leicester City on 13th August 2022.
He bagged a brace scoring the opening goal and the second goal to propel the team to a comfortable 4-2 win over the Foxes.
Gabriel Jesus’ next goal came against Aston Villa on August 31, 2022. He opened the scoring again for the Gunners in the 30th minute, and the team went on to defeat Steven Gerard’s men 2-1 to maintain their perfect record in the season.
After losing to Manchester United at Old Trafford before the international break, Arsenal picked up their game with a 3-0 away thrashing of Brentford on September 18, 2022, with Gabriel scoring the second goal in the 28th minute and his fourth in the season.
On Saturday, against fierce and unbeaten North London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur, Gabriel Jesus scored again to restore Arsenal’s lead after Harry Kane cancelled out Thomas Partey’s strike through a spot kick.
The match ended in a win for the Gunners, as Gabriel Jesus recorded his 5th goal of the season since joining the club.
Interestingly, he has continued with his undefeated Premier League stint each time he scores a goal.
The tally has now increased to 51 from the 47 he had at Manchester City. He is three more matches from equalling James Milner’s record who never tasted defeat in 54 Premier League matches he scored in.
How far can he go with the stats?
After making a switch to Arsenal, this is the question that pundits were preoccupied with trying to figure out what will be the fate of his magical stats.
It is still unclear how long he will build on the streak. If Gabriel Jesus has scored against Manchester United, would that have changed the outcome of the game?
Arsenal’s matchday eight win over Tottenham Hotspur have proven that Mikel Arteta is totally ready for the Premier Lesgue challenge this season.
The team is formidable. The Brazil international will be expected to build on his streaks and may likely surpass James Milner’s record.
Nevertheless, this magical and mind-blowing statistic will be put to full test when he faces bigger opponents in the Premier League as the season progresses.
