Saliba gave Arsenal the lead in the 17th minute with his second goal of the season as he headed home Bukayo Saka’s corner, before Jesus got his fourth league strike following his £45million summer move from Manchester City 11 minutes later.
Redknapp also highlighted that it was an important game for Fabio Vieira, who made his first league start since moving from Porto in the summer. “This is a big game for Vieira, they’ve paid big money for him, big chance,” Redknapp added.
“But not an easy game, they smother you in midfield, they press you, he’s not going to have a minute on the ball, they’ll move the ball quickly. We’ve seen it so often, Man United had problems there but he’s a talented player, it’s a tough one to go there, he’s got to adjust very quickly.”
