Gabriel Jesus 'rubbing his hands together' after 'devastating' Arsenal footage emerges - Campbell
Kevin Campbell has heaped praise on Arsenal winger Marquinhos and his “devastating” crossing ability.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Gunners and Everton striker said the 19-year-old’s performance against FC Zurich will have Gabriel Jesus “rubbing his hands together”.
As shown on BT Sport (8 September), Marquinhos contributed a goal and an assist in a 2-1 win over FC Zurich on Thursday.
The Brazilian attacker arrived to the Emirates from Sao Paulo on 1 July.
The Europa League fixture against FC Zurich was Marquinhos’ first senior appearance for Mikel Arteta’s side.
The winger had featured exclusively for Arsenal’s under-23s prior to the game.

When asked by Football Insider for his assessment of Marquinhos’ offensive output, Campbell said: “Some of the crosses he put in…
“The first cross he put in was for [Granit] Xhaka and if Xhaka hits the target he scores.
“Marquinhos whips in those crosses. He comes back in on his left foot and whips it. That could be a real weapon, I tell you.
“If I was Gabriel Jesus I would be rubbing my hands together.
“The cross for Eddie Nketiah, I don’t think you will see a better cross all season. If you see where he is, the defender seems to be in full control but as he whips the ball in, it dips over the centre-back’s head and right onto Eddie Nketiah in the six-yard box. What a devastating ball.“
