Another “knee injury” keeps Arsenal star out of the Liverpool match; there is no estimated comeback date – Ornstein

According to David Ornstein, Gabriel Jesus will miss Arsenal’s FA Cup match against Liverpool on Sunday due to a knee injury.

Since coming to the Gunners from Manchester City in the summer of 2022, Jesus has battled a variety of ailments.

The Brazilian had surgery last season to address a knee problem that had been bothering him.

Numerous connections to different attackers have resulted from his injury issues as well as his lack of confidence in front of goal.

Although it seems doubtful that Arsenal will be able to purchase a new striker in January, Mikel Arteta’s most recent injury setback may be the tipping point.

The Athletic correspondent Ornstein has disclosed that Jesus will be sidelined for the FA Cup encounter against Liverpool on Sunday, the Londoners’ first match of the month, due to an injury.
Fortunately for Arteta, the recent knee injury is regarded as “minor.”

On January 20, Arsenal takes on Crystal Palace in the Premier League following their match against the Reds on Sunday.

Whether the Brazilian international will be ready for that match has not yet been established.

This season, Jesus has made 15 appearances in the league, tallying three goals and dishing out one assist.

Speaking in November, Jesus stated he is unfazed by the team’s rumoured interest in other attackers, despite Brentford’s Ivan Toney being heavily linked to a move to the Emirates.

“You know, this could be agents conversing about a lot of things,” he remarked.

“While I don’t have a lot of experience, I believe I have seen a lot in football.

Sometimes things work like this; this even happened when I was a City player and Sergio Aguero scored a goal. People were connecting with each other, and I was scoring a lot. I don’t care about this, so let it go.

“I am aware of my strengths and the contributions I can make to the team. In addition to my ability to score, I can assist with opening spaces and other tasks. However, only those who observe and comprehend the game may see it.

“Oh, he didn’t score today,” we will say to those who don’t comprehend. However, I might sprint and make room for someone, and to be honest, I don’t often blow opportunities.

“I don’t think the issue is that he can’t score. The one thing I am working on is being more in-the-box at times.
