Arsenal star Gabriel Jesus insists the Gunners must 'come back to our principles'

Updated: Apr 20, 2023

Gabriel Jesus has issued a rallying cry to his Arsenal teammates, asking them to 'raise the level again' after they played out a 2-2 draw with West Ham on Sunday.

The Brazil striker Gabriel Jesus, who returned from injury a few weeks ago, insists that the Gunners have to bounce back to winning ways after dropping points at Anfield and the London Stadium.

Jesus broke the deadlock in the seventh minute before captain Martin Odegaard doubled their lead but the Mikel Arteta's boys failed to kill the game and ended up drawing 2-2 after Said Benrahma hit the net from the penalty spot and Jarrod Bowen finishing off a long pass from close-range.

The result leaves Arsenal still at the top, four points ahead of title rivals Manchester City, who have a game in hand.

However, ex-City star Jesus, who has scored four goals in his last four games, told Arsenal's official website that they must raise the bar again if they are to secure the 2022-23 Premier League title.

The 26-year-old said: 'Once again, the three points were in our hands. As a team, we have to raise the level and come back to our principles.

'We know our strength, we know what we can do. Where we want to attack the opponent, in the first 10 to 20 minutes we did so good, after that we dropped our level and that obviously cannot happen if you want to fight for the title.

'It started from like five or ten minutes before the penalty, because exactly after we scored the second goal we stopped. As a team, it's no time to blame, as a team we have to raise the level again and come back to our principles and like I said win the games, that's the only way we can arrive next month and then fight for the title again.'
