Arsenal vs Leicester City result score Gabriel Jesus gets two goals two assists in dominant 42 Gunners win

Maybe that preseason was no fluke after all Arsenal continued their perfect start to the new season with a second straight win

42 over Leicester City at a raucous Emirates Stadium which celebrated two goals and two assists by new forward hero Gabriel Jesus

Leicester started strong and did not allow Arsenal to build any momentum

but then Jesus got his team off the mark with a spectacular finish

 He followed that up with a header off a corner kick to send his team into the break up 20

Leicester City scored twice in the second half to seemingly make a game of it  a William Saliba own goal

and a James Maddison shot that went under Arsenals keeper  but the Gunners responded immediately each

 time as Granit Xhaka and Gabriel Martinelli found the back of the net both assisted by Jesus

Leicester had a penalty kick just before halftime that was subsequently scratched after video review as the referees

judged that Jamie Vardy sought out the contact with Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale

It was a comprehensive performance by Arsenal who pulled Leicester apart with their trademark interchanging runs and quick combinations

Jesus who had several looks to net a potential hat trick led the attacking moves alongside an electric Gabriel Martinelli
