Palace 0-2 Arsenal: Zinchenko outshines Jesus in First Season Debut, Was Pep Right Cashing On Him?

Seven goals in five preseason games much were expected from Arsenal's newest signee Gabriel Jesus -the team's main striker for this season but the Brazilian failed to make an impression in his first season debut against Crystal Palace.

Arrived together from reigning champions Manchester City, Oleksandr Zinchenko likewise was very solid as his assist to Gabriel Martinelli gave the "Gunners" the winning momentum before halftime.

This question of whether Pep Guardiola was right to cash on the Brazilian this summer, well an answer will be too quick as Gabriel Jesus' average goal per season is ten (10) and his replacement Erling Braut Haaland is yet to make his first Premier League debut for Manchester City.

However, a fine start to the season, the "Gunners" walked away with three points and two goals at Selhurst Park, courtesy of Gabriel Martinelli's brilliant strike and Marc Guehi's own goal -placing them at the top of the pile for the first time in the season 2003/2004, where they won their last known Premier League title unbeaten.

Watch highlights below.

What's your thought on Arsenal's overall performance and your man of the match?
