Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus has admitted that he made a mistake by not solely concentrating on scoring goals. His lack of Premier League goals over the last two years has contributed to the Gunners’ need for a new centre-forward.
Jesus’ recent goal from a tight angle helped secure an important 2-1 victory, aiding Arsenal’s push to recover ground on Liverpool. Despite scoring 73 goals over a six-year Premier League career, Jesus admits he should have focused on getting his name on the scoresheet more often.
The player now faces being replaced in the summer, with Brentford’s Ivan Toney strongly linked with a move to Arsenal. Jesus has changed his mindset and is now more focused on being in the box and trying everything to score.
He insists he is adapting his mindset to ensure missed opportunities do not impact his performances negatively. The pursuit of Toney or Napoli’s Victor Osimhen will continue to wait until the summer.
