The one down side of Arsenal’s 4-0 win over Chelsea was Gabriel Jesus sustaining an injury and manager Mikel Arteta has delivered an update on his £45m summer signing
Mikel Arteta has delivered an injury update on Gabriel Jesus after the striker was withdrawn in the 4-0 win over Chelsea.
The Brazilian, who joined the club in a £45m deal from Premier League rivals Manchester City earlier in the month, made the universal signal to the bench just before the hour mark that he needed to be substituted against the Blues and was swiftly replaced by Eddie Nketiah.
With the start of the Premier League season less than two weeks away and with Arsenal back in action next weekend against Sevilla in the Emirates Cup, it would be a massive setback if Arteta is not able to call upon Gabriel Jesus who has looked sharp in all of his pre-season outings.
Quizzed on the 25-year-old’s fitness after watching his side beat Chelsea 4-0 to lift the Florida Cup, the Gunners manager revealed that he did not want to take any risks: “He got a knock on his quad in the first half and he wasn’t feeling very comfortable,” Arteta said. “We decided not to take any risks today.”
On a brighter note, it’s now four goals in as many outings in an Arsenal shirt for Gabriel Jesus since his £45m transfer, going a long way to prove why Arteta was so keen on a reunion.Click Here if you do not want to wait.
