Arsenal have been given a major boost in their title challenge with star striker Gabriel Jesus back training on grass and pushing the boundaries ahead of his highly anticipated return. The 25-year-old has been out of action since the World Cup after suffering a knee injury while playing for Brazil.
The news of Jesus’ return is a welcome one for Mikel Arteta and the Gunners, who currently sit atop the Premier League standings, a point clear of rivals Manchester City and with a game in hand. Arteta has expressed his desire to have Jesus back as soon as possible, but also respecting the timescale that the doctors and specialists have set.
The news of Jesus’ return has Arsenal fans excited, with many taking to social media to express their joy. One fan said that the return of the “best Brazilian striker of all time” would spell bad news for other Premier League teams, while another tweeted that it was “scary”.
Before his injury, Jesus had scored five goals and assisted seven across all competitions. With 14 massive Premier League games left, including crunch clashes against Liverpool, Man City, Chelsea and Newcastle, Jesus’ return could be a major factor in Arsenal’s title push.
