Jesus helps Arsenal win at Sevilla


Gabriel Jesus of Arsenal FC celebrates after scoring his team's second goal with teammates during the UEFA Champions League match between Sevilla FC and Arsenal FC at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on October 24, 2023 in Seville, Spain.

Gabriel Jesus scored a goal and grabbed an assist to help Arsenal get back to winning ways in the Champions League with victory at Sevilla.

After losing 2-1 to Lens in their previous European outing, the Gunners came through a difficult test against the seven-time Europa League winners.

Gabriel Martinelli got the visitors up and running by marking his Champions League debut with a goal, racing onto Jesus' brilliant ball and rounding the goalkeeper in first-half stoppage time.

Jesus then increased Arsenal's lead early in the second half with a superb strike into the top corner.

Sevilla, backed by a vocal home crowd, got back into the game when Nemanja Gudelj headed in from a set piece.

From then on, Arsenal had to withstand some pressure as the hosts tried to find an equaliser, and David Raya tipped Mariano's shot onto the crossbar, although it may not have counted because of a possible handball.

Mikel Arteta's side then suffered a late blow as Jesus went off with an injury, but they held firm despite that setback to secure a victory that moves them top of Group B.
