The Daily Mail reports that Gabriel Jesus, an Arsenal striker, did not participate in Thursday’s training session. The UEFA Champions League match on Tuesday saw the Brazilian international sustain a hamstring injury during the team’s 2-1 triumph over Sevilla.
Jesus was the game’s MVP. He helped his team go up to the top of their group by setting up Gabriel Martinelli for a goal and then scored his own. The former Manchester City striker, nevertheless, hobbled off during the game’s last moments. On Friday, the results of his hamstring scan are anticipated.
He is reportedly questionable for Saturday’s Premier League matchup against Sheffield United, although it doesn’t seem like a catastrophic injury. After the final siren in Spain, Jesus discussed his injuries and expressed optimism about his level of fitness.
After the final whistle, Jesus talked about it with TNT Sports, saying, “I felt something.” Watch this.
I tested it with the physiotherapist, and it doesn’t seem that bad, but we’ll see. I may do a scan tomorrow. It’s probably going to be insignificant.”
Sheffield United, meanwhile, may be without up to eleven players for their trip to the Emirates Stadium due to a lengthy list of injuries. Currently experiencing fitness issues are Chris Basham, Anel Ahmedhodžić, George Baldock, Will Osula, Oli McBurnie, Rhys Norrington-Davies, John Egan, Tom Davies, Max Lowe, and Daniel Jebbison.
