Gabriel Jesus, the number nine for Arsenal, has stated that he is prepared to play more than 70 games this season as he and his club pursue championships. Since moving to Emirates Stadium from Manchester City, Jesus has had a brilliant debut. The Brazilian has already contributed five goals and five assists in 2022–23, and he has made it clear he is willing to play as many games as necessary to support Mikel Arteta’s team in its pursuit of domestic and European championships this year.
Jesus responded to The Times’ question about whether playing 70 games could be too much for him, Of course not. I’m performing good recuperation after the games. I’m eating better, sleeping better, and thoroughly enjoying life in the Arsenal t-shirt. I’m therefore prepared to play 50, 60, or 70 games per season. I’m all set. He continued, I don’t get as frustrated as I used to, referring to his altered mindset at Arsenal. I’ll be myself if I come here to talk to you folks. I will tell you positive things if I am doing well. Why lie when I’m not? Before, I didn’t get angry so quickly. Now no. I now possess a strong character.
On the field, Jesus’ readiness will be put to the test. The striker has already appeared 14 times for Arsenal in all competitions this season, although he has never started more than 22 games in a Premier League season. If Jesus wants to play 70 games, Arsenal fans are hoping to see this celebration more often this season. On Thursday night, Arsenal plays PSV with the knowledge that a win guarantees the top place in their Europa League group. The league’s top team will then play home to Nottingham Forest to maintain momentum following a somewhat uninspiring draw against Southampton.
