“I don’t know defeat.”
This is truly great confidence. Is it really possible? In reality, it is impossible. It is impossible to avoid the fate of defeat while playing for decades. But how can one make such an assurance without hesitation?
However, there is one clue that satisfies this. If the prerequisite “if I score a goal” is set, the situation changes. In other words, it is an admonition that in a game in which you score, you will not lose, even if there is a win or a draw.
In this way, the player who created the ‘scoring game = win or draw’ equation deserves to be called a ‘man of victory.’ So, among active players in the five major European soccer leagues, who is the best player that fits this equation?
Three players, including Jejus, have an undefeated record when scoring more than 50 games. Q
) What do the next English Premier League (EPL) games have in common?
Arsenal-Chelsea match in round 34 of 2022-2023 season, Arsenal-Wolverhampton Wanderers match in round 38 of 2022-2023 season, Arsenal-Manchester United match in round 4 of 2023-2024 season.
I think any decent Arsenal fan would be able to guess the correct answer. Arsenal won all three games. In the three games held at home, Arsenal won 3-1, 5-0, and 3-1 in succession.
But there is another thing in common. In these games, it is noticeable that one of Arsenal’s goalscorers is a common element. The point is that Gabriel Jesus (26) scored goals in all three games. In other words, Jejus was a person who brought victory by acting as a ‘herald of victory’.
In the games where he scored a goal, Jeju has an incredible record of never losing. He is the best among active players in the five major European soccer leagues (see table). Jejus, who entered the EPL by playing for Manchester City in the 2017-2018 season, has never lost in his scoring games for 7 seasons until the 2023-2024 season.
The number of games surprisingly reaches 57. It is even more surprising that most of the 57 games were won. He sang the triumphant song in 52 games. There are only 5 draws. The number of goals scored in 57 games is 70.
Jejus, who started his professional career at SE Palmeiras (2015-2017) in Brazil’s Serie A, is showing off his skills in full bloom in the EPL. He has already reached the top of the EPL four times (2017-2018 ~ 2018-2019, 2020-2021 ~ 2021-2022). He is a ‘happy player’ who is so lucky that he enjoyed two consecutive wins at Manchester City.
The person following Jesus, three steps behind, is James Milner (37, Brighton & Hove Albion). Milner, who played in the EPL with Leeds United in the 2002-2003 season, also boasts great success. He scored 43 wins and 11 draws in 54 games (55 goals).
Angel Correa (28) from Argentina is also leaving a mark comparable to Jejus and Milner. Since 2015, he has been playing for Atletigo Madrid in Spain’s La Liga, and has achieved success that cannot be ignored, ranking third in the ranks of the official creators of ‘score = undefeated’. He had 43 wins and 8 draws in 51 games in which he scored a goal.토스카지노
Ousmane Dembele (26, Paris Saint-Germain) and Kingsley Coman (27, Bayern Munich) took 4th and 5th place, respectively. The two refused to lose at least in the games in which they scored goals (Dembele 38, Coman 35). Unlike the other four players, Dembele accumulated records evenly in French Ligue 1, German Bundesliga, and Spanish La Liga.
There is no way to know when this rare record that five people are building will be broken, so we can’t help but focus our attention on their steps. It will be worth watching to see how much he will increase his records and receive and enjoy the love of the team and fans as a ‘man of victory’.
