Gabriel Jesus reveals Arsenal injury recovery date, giving the Premier League title chase a big boost.

Gabriel Jesus reveals Arsenal injury recovery date, giving the Premier League title chase a big boost.

Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez was seen justifying his comeback to Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Gabriel Jesus expects to return to Arsenal action in about a month.

A knee ailment has kept the Brazilian out since the World Cup, and he underwent surgery in early December, with a three-month layoff predicted.

After being seen discussing his recuperation with UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov, that period may prove to be an overestimation of Jesus’ return timetable.

The Russian was at the Emirates Stadium for Arsenal’s triumph over Manchester United on Sunday and ran into Jesus, who he recorded and posted on Instagram.

“Maybe four or five weeks, then we’ll come back,” Jesus says in the video.

While Arsenal and the player have not verified the exact context of the footage, many online speculated that it was about his impending comeback from injury.

According to this plan, Jesus will be back in a Gunners shirt before the March international break, with a trip to Leicester scheduled on February 25. A week later, Arsenal will visit Bournemouth in the Premier League, with a possible FA Cup fifth-round meeting in between.

Nketiah equalised for the Gunners with a booming header after a fine Marcus Rashford strike gave United the lead at the Emirates. Bukayo Saka put the hosts ahead shortly after half-time but Lisandro Martinez’s looping header pegged the league-leaders back just before the hour mark.

The points seemed destined to be shared in north London only for Nketiah to delicately guide Martin Odegaard’s shot beyond David de Gea and send the Arsenal faithful into frenzy. The Gunners academy graduate has been so impressive in front of goal that Jesus may not be immediately recalled by manager Arteta.

The Spaniard also has another option in attack after completing a £27million deal to sign Leandro Trossard from Brighton on Friday. The Belgian wideman, 28, came off the bench against United to make his Arsenal debut and looked bright throughout his second-half cameo.
