Highlights: Gabriel Jesus brilliance & Elneny rocket inspire Arsenal’s 5-goal friendly turnaround

8 July 2022 0 By Total Football News

Footage of the eight-goal thriller played out by Premier League giants Arsenal on Friday evening has come to the fore online.

The Gunners, of course, were back in action a short time ago.

Amid the ongoing efforts of Mikel Arteta’s troops to step up their preparations for the new campaign, Arsenal, as part of the club’s pre-season tour of Germany, went head-to-head with Nurnberg in a friendly clash.

And to say that those in attendance were afforded their money’s worth over the course of the 90 minutes would be something of an understatement.

It was the evening’s hosts who emerged from the blocks much the stronger of the two sides, racing out to a two-goal advantage inside the first-half owing to strikes on the part of Johannes Geis and Kwadwo Duah.

A series of half-time alterations on the part of Mikel Arteta, though, soon saw the scoreline swing back in Arsenal’s favour.

The catalyst, much to the delight of the Gunners faithful, proved big-money summer signing Gabriel Jesus, who made his mark courtesy of a first strike in the club’s colours just 90 seconds after being introduced, before playing a direct hand in a further three goals, too.

Elsewhere, Mohamed Elneny, also brought on from the bench, bagged the goal of the day from long range, en route to an eventual 5-3 Arsenal triumph.
