"After the World Cup I thought that I couldn't play as a No.9," explained Gabriel Jesus in an interview for ESPN Brazil.
"I started playing much more on the wing at [Manchester] City and for Brazil. For a while I thought that.
"But I've changed my mentality, I believe much more in myself now. I'm smiling again playing football [at Arsenal].
"I’m very blessed as I can play across all front three but I am a No.9. I am there to finish our chances. Not only that but to help the team as a whole."
The Brazilian, 25, has given fans every reason to believe he will reach new heights in Arsenal colours.
After a promising pre-season rout of nine goals and two assists, Jesus has scored twice in two Premier League games so far.
