Gabriel Jesus carries the Gunners
Sensational. This is the term that surely best describes the match which the public at the Emirates Stadium attended this Saturday. By offering spectacle and victory against Leicester (4-2), the Gunners of Mikel Arteta saw the birth of the new darling of Londoners: Gabriel Jesus. Scorer twice during the first period (23rd, 35th), the Brazilian was of all actions, continuing his number in the second half, to offer assists to Granit Xhaka (55th) then to his compatriot Gabriel Martinelli (75th).

A complete match, where Arsenal nevertheless managed to scare themselves. First on William Saliba’s own goal, the French defender having catapulted an unfortunate helmet shot into the cages of Aaron Ramsdale in the 53rd. Then on the Foxes’ second goal, scored by James Maddison in the 74th. But with each goal conceded, the London formation, transcended, knew how to come back immediately in stride. Arsenal therefore signs its second victory in two games, and takes the provisional second place in the Premier League.
Haaland mute, City rolls out anyway
Highly anticipated after his double against West Ham on the first day of the championship, Erling Haaland remained silent this Saturday against Bournemouth, which did not prevent Manchester City from rolling over their opponent of the day at the Etihad Stadium (4-0).
Ilkay Gündogan, as a good captain, opened the proceedings in the 19th minute, well served by the Norwegian striker. Then Kevin De Bruyne, on his legs in his garden, distinguished himself by first scoring in the 31st, with a sumptuous shot taken from the outside of the foot, before becoming a decisive passer for Phil Foden in the 37th.
The Citizens, reigning champions, take the lead in the Premier League, Pep Guardiola having, like every year, quickly restored the bases of excellence of his team. The players of the Spanish tactician will travel to Newcastle on August 21 for the 3rd day of the championship.
Southampton catch Leeds, Brighton neutralize Newcastle

Same score on the Molineux Stadium scoreboard, where Wolverhampton dominated promoted Fulham for most of the game, without managing to materialize their actions (0-0). The hosts suffered the wrath of the Cottagers late in the game, however managing not to concede a goal.
At St. Mary’s Stadium, Southampton were surprised by Rodrigo’s double, the Spanish center-forward from Leeds having given his team a good lead on the way back from the break (46th and 60th). But Ralph Hasenhüttl’s men showed character to come back to score, first through his summer rookie Joe Aribo (72nd) then his international English right-back Kyle Walker-Peters (81st). Final result, 2 to 2, and regrets for the Whites of Jesse Marsch.
