And previewing Arsenal’s game away to Fulham , Arteta stated that Jesus has been trying to work his way to full fitness.

“He’s had a bad injury and he’s been really pushing the boundaries and trying to get that recovery as quick and smooth as possible,” Arsenal.com quoted Arteta as saying

“The timescale that he had has been respected and it’s now more about his feelings, and when he actually demands he wants to be a part of it.”

Martin Odegaard is also a doubt for the game due to illness as he complained of a sore throat, Kieran Tierney is out due to illness, Mohammed Elneny is reportedly nursing a knee injury, Leandro Trosaard is also unavailable for selection due to a groin injury and Eddie Nketiah has an ankle injury.
