Latest Arsenal injury news as one player to miss Sporting amid Gabriel Jesus update

Arsenal beat Fulham in the Premier League, with The Gunners easing a tough away game to beat the Cottagers 3-0 and retain their five-point lead at the top of the Premier League table.

After an injury-related doubt before the game, Leandro Trossard played a key role in the win with three assists, marking a top performance from the entire team. They now hope to beat Sporting this Thursday night and Crystal Palace next weekend before heading off on their international break and returning in April.

This means that potentially small injury issues at camp can be resolved over the course of a two week break in action. The title run will follow and Mikel Arteta will be hoping for a clean bill of health for what may be the most important series of games in Arsenal’s recent history.

Last week there were more injury issues to worry about with doubts surrounding Martin Odegaard, Eddie Nketiah, Trossard and Gabrial Jesus. However, all were back and faced Fulham as Arteta seemed to have addressed the squad’s injury situation ahead of the game.

Jesus played 13 minutes in the game over the weekend, his first minutes since injuring himself at the World Cup with Brazil. After the match, Arteta expressed his delight at the return of Jesus, who could make his first start before the international break.

Arteta spoke about his striker’s return and his relief to see the former Manchester City man return. He said: “A big boost. The first step today. We didn’t know if today was the right game. He said to me a few days ago: ‘I’m still missing something.’ Yesterday I looked him in the eye and he said, “I’m ready.” I said, “OK!” Then we had a chance to throw him in.”

“It’s the first step to give him that big boost. He looks clear, he looks ready and he immediately created those two big chances. It’s great to have him back.”
