Gabriel Jesus is back for Fulham Clash

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has stated that Gabriel Jesus is “ready to go” for Saturday’s Premier League London derby at the Emirates against Fulham.
After undergoing knee surgery, the Brazilian striker was forced to miss Arsenal’s first two wins of the new season against Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace.

Jesus had already missed three months due to a severe injury sustained during the World Cup, which he aggravated during the Gunners’ pre-season tour of the United States.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has stated that Gabriel Jesus is “ready to go” for Saturday’s Premier League London derby at the Emirates against Fulham.
After undergoing knee surgery, the Brazilian striker was forced to miss Arsenal’s first two wins of the new season against Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace.

Jesus had already missed three months due to a severe injury sustained during the World Cup, which he aggravated during the Gunners’ pre-season tour of the United States.

Jesus’ procedure was not supposed to keep him out for long, and a return in September was previously thought to be the most likely case, but he has made significant progress in his recuperation.

Gabriel Jesus to join the Gunners squad on Saturday Match

The 26-year-old returned to Arsenal team training on Thursday, and in a press conference on Friday, Arteta refused to rule out Jesus starting in Saturday’s derby.

“Having another surgery after his pre-season was a huge blow for him.” “He’s looking really sharp, he trained really well all week, so he’s ready to go,” Arteta is quoted as saying by football.london.

When asked if the former Manchester City striker will be available from the start, Arteta smiled and replied, “Let’s see.”

While the return of Jesus would be a big boost to Arsenal’s attacking lines, his deputy, Eddie Nketiah, has made two vital contributions in the Gunners’ first two triumphs.

After scoring against Nottingham Forest, the Englishman seized onto Gabriel Martinelli’s fast free kick versus Palace and was pulled down by Sam Johnstone, allowing Martin Odegaard to score from the spot.

With Jesus, Nketiah, Leandro Trossard, and Kai Havertz all capable of playing in the number nine position, Arsenal’s Folarin Balogun is reportedly on the approach of a permanent move to Ligue 1 side Monaco, in what might be a club-record sale.
