Arsenal Need To Maintain Intensity For Full 90 Minutes — Gabriel Jesus

Arsenal Need To Maintain Intensity For Full 90 Minutes — G

Gabriel Jesus

Brazilian forward Gabriel Jesus has urged Arsenal to maintain their intensity for the full 90 minutes of a match if they want to challenge for the Premier League title following their disappointing 2-2 draw against West Ham United on Sunday.

After taking a commanding 2-0 lead with goals from Jesus and Martin Odegaard in the first 10 minutes of the game, Arsenal lost their momentum and allowed West Ham to fight back with goals from Said Benrahma and Jarrod Bowen.

Bukayo Saka also missed a penalty in the second half, leaving Arsenal with just a single point from the match.

In a statement to the club's website, Jesus expressed his frustration, saying, "Once again, the three points were in our hands.

"The game is 90 minutes, it's not 20, in this case, today, 30 minutes. As a team, we have to raise the level and come back to our principles."

Jesus emphasized the importance of maintaining their performance levels throughout the entire match and not letting opponents off the hook, especially in crucial moments of the season.

"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."

Arsenal, who currently lead Manchester City by four points but have played a game more, have previously experienced similar setbacks, including letting a 2-0 lead slip against Liverpool earlier this month.

Jesus called on his team to raise their level and stick to their principles in their upcoming matches against Southampton on Friday and their crucial clash against second-placed Manchester City on April 26.

With the Premier League title race heating up, Arsenal will need to maintain their intensity and consistency throughout the full duration of matches to keep their title aspirations alive.
