According to reports, Arsenal have been handed a major fitness boost after the victory against Bournemouth yesterday with Gabriel Jesus joining in with the rest of the team in the post-match warm down at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners have been without their number nine since the World Cup, and fans will be desperate to see him back on the pitch as soon as possible, especially as it now looks like he could return at just the right moment with Leandro Trossard going off injured against Bournemouth & Eddie Nketiah also not fully fit.
Leandro Trossard picked up a muscular injury during the first-half against Bournemouth and was forced to come off, as well as Eddie Nketiah currently carrying a knock to his ankle which is why he wasn’t in the match day squad yesterday, however it’s not expected to be a long term injury for Arsenal’s number fourteen.
Goal have reported that Jesus was involved in the warm-down yesterday afternoon, and one image shows he was involved in some contact work and a mini-match on the Emirates pitch.
This points towards the Brazil international being in much better shape again after the blow of having to undergo knee surgery earlier this season.
