Arsenal play secret behind-closed-doors friendly ahead of flying out on US pre-season tour… and Jesus scores again | The Sun

GABRIEL JESUS was on the scoresheet again as Arsenal played a secret friendly at London Colney.

The Gunners had one final run out before jetting off for their pre-season tour of the US.

The in-house friendly reportedly ended 1-1 with Jesus adding to his pre-season tally.

Jesus scored twice on his debut in a 5-3 win over Nuremberg in Arsenal's first pre-season friendly last week.

Three goals in two games means the former Manchester City star is off to a flyer and Arsenal will hope his form continues overseas.
