EPL: He can’t score 20 goals this season – Hasselbaink gives verdict on Arsenal’s main man


Chelsea legend, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has said he is not convinced that Gabriel Jesus will ever become a 20-goal-a-season striker at Arsenal.

He said despite being a great signing for the Gunners, the Brazilian is not the type that scores many goals.

Jesus was a constant threat to Manchester United’s defence in what turned out a frustrating day for the Gunners, who were beaten 3-1 at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Brazil international has scored three times in six matches for Arsenal, also playing a crucial part of the side that had gone unbeaten until today’s game.

Hasselbaink said Jesus does not get in enough scoring positions and may not score as many goals as expected by Arsenal fans

“He’s come in [and scored] three goals, made chances, made others around him play better,” Hasselbaink said on Sky Sports.

“I’m still not convinced he will be 20 goals a season because if he was that, then why did he not do that at Man City in a better team?

“He is not somebody that scores goals out and out and out.

“He’s got three goals in five matches – which is brilliant. He’s a great signing.”
