A few days after the Brazilian forward was the hero in the side’s victory over Sevilla in the Champions League, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta warned that the club might be without Gabriel Jesus for a “few weeks” due to an injury. This announcement came before the team’s game against Sheffield United.

On Friday, Arteta informed reporters that a scan revealed a muscular problem in the player. It’s possible that we won’t see him for a few weeks. I cannot provide you with an accurate time range for Gabi because he often shocks us.

“It’s what we want to avoid, but with the schedule that we have and the number of games that we have, it’s something that we knew was going to happen,” Arteta told reporters.

“It’s happening to every club in the Premier League, so there’s no difference.”

After scoring a goal and assisting another in Arsenal’s 2-1 Champions League victory in Spain on Tuesday, Jesus was forced off with a hamstring injury shortly after the game. This victory sent Arsenal to the top of Group B.

A muscular ailment will keep Thomas Partey, a midfielder for the team, out of action for the next few weeks as well.

Arteta stated that additional players are what the team requires. “There’s no secret, the players have a certain amount of energy and the battery only lasts so long or we will burn them out.”

Arsenal is now in third place in the Premier League table, just two points behind league leaders Tottenham and tied with Manchester City regarding issues. After nine contests, Sheffield United have the fewest points possible—only one.

Arteta has stated that his squad would not take Sheffield United lightly, especially considering their performance in their most recent match, which was a 2-1 loss to Manchester United.

“The way they have played against all the other teams has been strong; they’re clung on, and then it’s been late goals conceded,” according to the Spaniard. They are in a battle for their lives. Therefore, it is going to be a challenging match.

“Everyone is on their toes; they know what is coming, and I was obvious with them.”
