Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has confirmed that Gabriel Jesus is available for the Arsenal’s clash with Fulham on Saturday.

Jesus picked up a knee injury before the Community Shield. This is the end of July and he has missed Arsenal’s two opening Premier League fixtures.

His return comes as great news for Arteta. He has opted to use Eddie Nketiah as a centre-forward in his absence. He scored the winning goal in Arsenal’s 2-1 victory over Nottingham Forest. So it will be interesting to see if the manager drops him this weekend.

Mikel Arteta said he is delighted to see Jesus available for selection again, while speaking to the press.

Arteta delighted to have Gabriel Jesus back

Mikel Arteta says:-

“I was really happy. It was a big blow after the preseason he had to have surgery. He’s looking good. He’s ready to go,”

Folarin Balogun is one player heavily linked with a departure. However, he is expected to sign for AS Monaco on a permanent deal. Left-back Kieran Tierney is also close to securing a loan move to Real Sociedad.

On potential outgoings, Arteta added:

There are some movements happening. The last week is going to be busy. Nothing that we can announce at the moment.”

Arteta is very much delighted that Gabriel Jesus is back. Moreover, Arsenal would look to get a comprehensive win Vs Fulham this weekend inorder to stamp their authority. However, Arsenal are still looking for a replacement for Jurrien Timber and are still active in the market.

If Arsenal can get the replacement in time then they would become the favourites to win Premier League this season along with Manchester City. Arsenal will try and rectify the mistakes they have made last season and will try to win the league this year.
