It is being reported this morning that Gabriel Jesus is set to miss the rest of the World Cup due to a knee injury sustained in the 1-0 defeat to Cameroon last night.
The 25 year old was due for a scan today, and it seems that the news is not good for the Arsenal man. It should be noted that this not yet official, but appears to be coming from well placed sources.
🚨 Má notícia para o Brasil!

It’s a blow for the player, and obviously a worry for Mikel Arteta. Jesus has been an important cog in his table topping machine, and being without him for any sustained period of time would be a significant blow
More on this as we get it, and in the meantime keep everything crossed that it’s not too serious. The report says he could be out for up to a month, so it’s not impossible that he could be fit again by December 26th when we face West Ham in our first post-World Cup fixture.
