Arsenal anticipating Gabriel Jesus return before crucial league fixture

Arsenal has received a significant injury boost with the return of Gabriel Jesus to training during their trip to Dubai. Jesus had missed Arsenal’s 2-0 FA Cup defeat against Liverpool due to knee problems.

Arsenal had optimistic expectations that Gabriel Jesus’ injury was not severe. But the duration of his absence remained uncertain. It’s worth noting that Jesus was already missing the beginning of the season due to knee surgery from the previous term.

Gabriel Jesus faced additional setbacks earlier in the season, missing several weeks in October and November due to a hamstring injury. Another period on the sidelines would have posed a significant challenge for Mikel Arteta and his squad.

Gabriel Jesus has rejoined training with the Arsenal squad as part of their warm-weather training camp in Dubai. This development indicates positive progress in his recovery from the earlier reported knee issue.

Return of Gabriel Jesus would boost Arsenal a lot

Arsenal will be facing Crystal Palace on Saturday in a much-needed win. Thus, the potential return of Gabriel Jesus would serve as a significant boost for the Gunners. The team’s title challenge has faced challenges in recent weeks, and having Jesus available would provide valuable reinforcement.

Mikel Arteta has expressed that it is not proper for Arsenal to secure the signing of a striker in the current transfer window. Consequently, the fitness of Gabriel Jesus becomes pivotal as Arsenal aims to revitalize their season following three consecutive defeats.

Arsenal’s upcoming schedule includes a trip to Nottingham Forest at the end of the month. Thus, followed by a crucial series of fixtures in February against Liverpool, West Ham, Burnley, and Newcastle. Additionally, the team is set to participate in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie against Porto during this period.
