‘So He’s Missing The City Game, Such A Shame’ ‘We Need Him By March’ Fans React As Injured Arsenal Ace Reveals Possible Return Date

‘So He’s Missing The City Game, Such A Shame’ ‘We Need Him By March’ Fans React As Injured Arsenal Ace Reveals Possible Return Date

Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus says he could be back in training within the next “four to five weeks” following surgery.

The Brazilian international has been out of action since the World Cup due to a knee injury and it appears that he won’t be playing for the first team until March at the very earliest.

Supporters on Twitter were hoping that Jesus would be available to play again sooner than that but they also don’t want him to rush back before he is ready:

With the way Eddie Nketiah is playing at the moment, it means fans are less anxious about Jesus’s potential return date than they otherwise would have been.

The Brazilian is likely to miss six to seven more matches, including the two fixtures versus Manchester City in the FA Cup and the league, as well as games against the likes of Everton, Brentford, Aston Villa, Leicester and perhaps Bournemouth.
