How Many Games Will Gabriel Jesus Miss at Arsenal After Surgery On Injured Knee

Gabriel Jesus is set to be absent from Arsenal’s initial three matches of the season, at a minimum, following knee surgery he underwent on Wednesday.

Last season, the Brazilian striker missed 15 games for the Gunners due to a right knee injury sustained while representing Brazil in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

However, he made a comeback in time for Arsenal’s last 13 games of the 2022/23 season and managed to score six goals during that period.

During this summer’s pre-season friendlies, Jesus played in Arsenal’s first four matches and appeared to have fully recovered from his knee issue.

Mikel Arteta made the decision to exclude Gabriel Jesus from Wednesday’s match against Monaco in the Emirates Cup, which Arsenal won 5-4 on penalties following a 1-1 draw where Eddie Nketiah scored from open play.

The Gunners’ official Twitter account tweeted about the lineup change shortly after it was announced. “Gabby Jesus misses tonight’s game due to a knee issue and will be assessed.”

A further update was issued by manager Arteta after the match.

Arteta told reporters at the Emirates Stadium: “Unfortunately, he has had a little procedure this morning.

“He had some discomfort in his knee that has been causing some issues and they had to go in and resolve it.

“It’s not something major, but he’s going to be out for a few weeks I think.”

Confirmed, Gabriel Jesus will undoubtedly miss the upcoming Community Shield game against Manchester City at Wembley and also Arsenal’s first two English Premier League (EPL) fixtures.

This includes the match at home against Nottingham Forest and the away game against Crystal Palace. His absence is due to the knee surgery he underwent recently, which will keep him out of action for at least these initial matches of the season.
