Arsenal have received a bit of a blow going into their FA Cup clash against Manchester City at the weekend as the Blues have one of their key men returning to action.
- Gabriel Jesus fractured his metatarsal against Bournemouth on 14 February
- Scored 3 and assisted 1 in 4 Premier League appearances before injury
- Said to return for Arsenal game
- Gunners without key players
Gabriel Jesus, who has been sidelined since 14 February with a fractured metatarsal, has returned to training and although he’s been out for months, 101GreatGoals claims that he’s ready for action and could return for the FA Cup match on Sunday.
Before he was sidelined, the forward had scored three goals and assisted once in four Premier League appearances. His injury was therefore seen as part of the reason City couldn’t manage to win the title this season.
Fully fit or not, if he plays, he could be a massive threat to Arsenal, especially as they’re only in the trial phases of using a back-three for the first time in 20 years.
