Arsenal’s returning striker Gabriel Jesus said he was ‘a little disappointed’ to not see out Saturday’s 4-1 win over Leeds United and made it clear he thinks he’s ready to finish the game next time out. 

Jesus said: “Obviously, every player wants to play the full 90 minutes.

“I think I’m ready to play more minutes. However, when the ref said to me I was going off, I was a little bit disappointed because I want to play, but of course I respect the manager and the other players as well. So, it was 60 minutes, but I enjoyed it a lot.”

Since returning to action in March, Jesus has only just managed to accumulate  90 minutes across his three matches.

Speaking after the match, Jesus said: “It was so good playing again, starting again and feeling the atmosphere of the crowd. I want to score and I practice penalties.

“The most important thing is always the three points. It doesn’t matter how [we do it], but three points are always the most important thing.

“Obviously, I want to score, I want to help the team with the goals. I missed a big part of the season and now I just want to play and help the team.”

Saturday’s win, which also saw goals from Ben White and Granit Xhaka for Arsenal as well as a Rasmus Kristensen consolation for Leeds, moved the Gunners back to 8 points clear of City at the top of table.
