It is a victory fairy. In a league game where Gabriel Jesus started the scoring, his team never lost.
Arsenal won 3-1 against Chelsea in the 34th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Emirates안전놀이터 Stadium in London, England at 4 am (Korean time) on the 3rd. Arsenal added 3 points and succeeded in taking the lead with 24 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses (78 points).
I tasted the sweetness of victory after a long time. Arsenal quickly took the lead in the 18th and 31st minutes when ‘captain’ Martin Odegard scored consecutively. He scored 3 goals in the first half alone and overcame Chelsea, who managed only 1 goal in the second half. With this, I was able to get out of the sluggishness of 4 consecutive draws (3 draws and 1 loss) in the league.
Jesus also scored a goal. In the 34th minute of the first half, Jesus hit the defense and pushed the ball into the goal accurately even when there was no angle. Jesus scored his 10th goal this season and his 5th since returning from injury, signaling a complete return to form.
He also set a unique record. According to football statistics media ‘Opta’, Jesus did not lose a single time in 55 EPL games he scored. He scored a total of 68 goals for Manchester City and Arsenal, in which Jesus’ team won 50 and drew 5.
This is the best record in the EPL. Previously, James Milner’s 54-game scoring record and undefeated record had been the best. With this goal, Jesus led Arsenal to victory over Chelsea, breaking the record by scoring and unbeaten in 55 games.
Jesus’ goal makes defeat oblivious. He also scored in 13 matches in the Brazilian league, losing only once (10 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss).
The same goes for cup competitions. Jesus only tasted two defeats (16 matches, 14 wins, 2 losses) in the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL), and won all 12 matches scored in the English FA Cup and Football League Cup.
He is also a ‘victory fairy’ in the Brazilian national team. Jesus set a record by winning all 15 matches he scored for Brazil. However, since 2020, Jesus has scored only one goal in A match, and this has a somewhat faded aspect.
