The 26-year-old former Manchester City star continues to undertake rehabilitation work.

After last season’s incredibly late heart break for Arsenal and manager Mikel Arteta, the club spent heavily during the summer transfer window in an effort to further strengthen the gaffer’s options, and they have had a good start to the 2023/24 Premier League campaign, and currently sit in second spot in the table with ten games played.

They have not had it all their own way though and key striker Gabriel Jesus has massively struggled for fitness so far this campaign having had numerous injury niggles, and whilst it was initially expected that he may well have been back in time for the upcoming game against Newcastle United (although that was not an official timescale), having picked up a hamstring problem in the game against Sevilla last week, he is now not expected to return to contention until at least the beginning of December which gives fans who like a flutter a bit longer to checkarticle and work out what their future little punts may be – given his run of problems so far this year, this does also make sense as it gives him the November international break to capitalise on as well.

The 26-year-old former Manchester City star continues to undertake rehabilitation work as he eyes an eventual return to the pitch, but he is obviously not yet back out on the London Colney pitches.

If the 63-capped Brazilian international player does not return until December as now expected, he would then have to be managed extremely carefully given how quickly the games will come during the festive fixture period, but that would naturally mean he misses out on a further six games for the side in total.

The EFL Cup clash with West Ham United yesterday evening, would be followed by Premier League matches against the aforementioned Newcastle, a further away game against Brentford, and Burnley’s visit to the Emirates Stadium.

On a Champions League front he would also be ruled out for back-to-back home Group games against Sevilla and RC Lens.

The most likely return date right now would be the home clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers at the beginning of the month, and with a further seven games scheduled for December, including a trip to Anfield to face Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side on December 23, he would undoubtedly need to be regularly rotated, with game time continuing to be shared with fellow attacker Eddie Nketiah, who scored his first Premier League hat trick last weekend in their 5-0 victory over Sheffield United.

Midfielder Thomas Partey is also facing a number of weeks out on the sidelines with the muscle injury that he has picked up.
