Gabriel Jesus hints about his return to Arsenal from injury


Gabriel Jesus have hinted that this could be his last week recovering from injury. The player have had to spend a lengthy amount of time on the sidelines. Gabriel Jesus could make a huge return after his last week of recovery. He have been out since last December after he got injured in the World Cup. He have since then undergone successful surgery to recover from the ligament damage to his knee. Jesus sustained the injury in Brazil’s group-stage match against Cameroon in the Qatar World Cup. However speaking to Khabib Nurmagomedov, Gabriel Jesus have confessed that he is likely to be back in four-five weeks. It has been five weeks since he made those comments. Therefore it is safe to say that his return to the Arsenal team is just around the corner.

Mikel Arteta provided an update on Gabriel Jesus

Mikel Arteta was recently asked about Gabriel Jesus in his pre-match conference. While talking ahead of the Arsenal match against Manchester City Arteta provided some updates. He provided some positive updates on the player. However, he was unable to provide a time frame for Jesus’s return. Arteta said,

“Doing really well. he’s been doing quite a lot of work on the ball already and his rehab is going well.”

He further adds on,

“Unfortunately no (with regard to a return date). Ask the doctor maybe he’ll give you one.”

Sadly though there have been no confirmation since then. But if Arteta or Jesus’ words were to be believed then it is only a matter of time. The fans are really hoping for Gabriel Jesus to make a return to the pitch. The team seems to be missing his dribbling skills in the final third of the pitch.

For the most part, Arsenal have coped well with the absence of Gabriel Jesus. However, the lack of options for strikers is becoming apparent day by day. Eddie Nketiah has now played the full 90 minutes in the last eleven games. And have failed to score a goal in the last four of them. Therefore this makes Jesus’ return more desirable to the fans and the team.
