According to reports, Gabriel Jesus is expected back in the Arsenal squad before the game against Crystal Palace on the 19th March.
It’s possible the Brazilian will feature in some U21 fixtures very soon to bolster his fitness ahead of a return to first-team action.
Football London have reported that Arsenal are hopeful of having Gabriel Jesus back in the squad before the international break.
Mikel Arteta recently praised Jesus’ hard work and determination while undergoing his recovery and that the player is doing everything in his power to be back on the pitch as soon as possible.
The 25-year-old has made an instant impact since joining The Gunners at the beginning of the season, scoring five goals and getting seven assists in all competitions before the World Cup. However, Eddie Nketiah has come in, in Jesus’ absence, and done extremely well with his chance, scoring against Brighton, West Ham, Oxford United & Manchester United so far.
Arsenal aren’t feeling the effects of Gabriel Jesus’ injury on the pitch just yet with Mikel Arteta’s men sitting two points clear at the top of the table with a game in hand, but the boss wants competition for places and he’ll hope his number nine is back on the pitch as soon as possible, which is looking more likely by the day.
