Arsenal have been handed a huge boost regarding Gabriel Jesus after the forward appeared to pick a knock against Liverpool on Sunday.


The 25-year-old has been crucial to Arsenal’s playing style, results and form this season in the Premier League. Since his move from Manchester City, he has been solid in attack for Mikel Arteta’s side, recording ten goal contributions in his 11 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners so far.

On Sunday, the Brazilian won the penalty which led to the winning goal against Liverpool. He once again showed his class and experience despite a relatively quiet evening at the Emirates Stadium, but there were fears when he went down due to the elbow he received from Kostas Tsimikas during the game.

Jesus later continued to play after receiving some medical attention before being substituted for Eddie Nketiah.

When asked after the match whether the Brazilian had been knocked out cold, Mikel Arteta replied: “I don’t know. I haven’t been with the doctor yet, but I’m sure they’re checking him. He seemed OK after the game. I don’t actually know what happened, but we will obviously assess how he is.”


Arsenal have now been handed a huge boost following the injury scare to Jesus in their win over Liverpool on Sunday.

BBC Sport reporter Alex Howell reported that the 25-year-old completed the necessary concussion protocol before coming back onto the pitch again. The Brazilian was later checked again by the club doctor and has been cleared, so he should be available for the next match against Bodo/Glimt tomorrow evening.

With several crunch fixtures coming up, Arteta will be hopeful that his star striker is available for selection due to his importance to the side. Luckily, it appears that he will be available for the upcoming run of matches.


Arsenal have already had to cope with a multitude of injury issues this season and can’t afford to lose Jesus with such a busy schedule over the next month.

It is likely that he will start from the bench on Thursday once again, so there appears no need to use him or rush him back for the Europa League fixture in Norway.
