Charles Watts excited by Arsenal injury news for Gabriel Jesus

Journalist Charles Watts has been left excited by the latest injury update for Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus as he nears a return.

What’s the latest on Gabriel Jesus’s injury at Arsenal?

The Brazilian picked up a bad knee injury while away with his country at the 2022 winter World Cup and subsequently had to undergo surgery to solve the problem.

As a result, the striker has yet to feature for Arsenal since the return of Premier League football with his last appearance coming way back in mid-November.

However, in a positive update, manager Mikel Arteta recently told the press that Jesus is “doing really well”. He added: “He’s on the pitch, he’s been doing quite a lot of work on the ball already and so far his rehab is going well.”

While speaking about it all on his YouTube channel on Wednesday morning, Watts was delighted with the update and added that it won’t be “too much longer until” the Brazilian returns.

He said: “Brilliant news about Jesus from Mikel Arteta yesterday.

Watts then quoted the manager before adding: “It’s a really positive update from Arteta there on Gabriel Jesus.

“The fact he’s doing a lot of work with the ball already, that is very, very good. Fingers crossed, it’s not going to be too much longer until we see him.”

Will Arsenal win the league with Gabriel Jesus back fit?





What does this Jesus update mean for the Gunners?

Before his injury, Jesus was in fine form helping Arsenal go into the break for the World Cup sitting at the top of the Premier League table.

Indeed, in his first 14 league games for the north London club, he had contributed directly to 11 goals – scoring five while also setting up a further six.

With that in mind, it was a big blow for the Gunners when they learned they would be without him for such a long section of the season and the sooner he can get back, the better.

It remains to be seen as to when exactly he’ll be fit to play again for Arteta but it sounds as though an end to his injury woes is finally in sight.
