Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus is amongst the Brazil substitutes along with Gunners teammate Gabriel Martinelli for their World Cup opener against Serbia.
Jesus has proved to be a superb signing for Arsenal after completing a £45million transfer from Manchester City in the summer. The Brazilian striker has scored five goals and provided a further seven assists in 20 appearances across all competitions so far this season.
Despite enduring a difficult goal drought before the World Cup break, Jesus continues to influence games whilst Martinelli has improved his own performances under Mikel Arteta. Brazil teammate Richarlison completed a £50million transfer to north London rivals Tottenham in the summer and is set to start ahead of the Gunners duo for Tite against Serbia tonight.
football.london takes a look at how Arsenal fans reacted to the news that their star striker will not start ahead of Spurs rival Richarlison. @TArsenalBulls7 tweeted: "How can he choose Richarlison over Jesus?"
Another user posted: "how is Richarlison starting for Brazil? *eye roll emoji* Jesus is so clear!"
@arh_ball posted: "Richarlison over Jesus is a disgrace."
One Arsenal fan tweeted: "Flop Richarlison starting over signing of the season Jesus *crying emoji*"
@chris1upp was just as confused with Tite's decision, tweeting: "Richarlison over Jesus is crazy!"
