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.
