Arsenal has been dealt a blow ahead of their highly anticipated Community Shield match against Manchester City this weekend, as their star striker Gabriel Jesus could potentially miss the game. The Brazilian forward was absent from Arsenal’s last friendly match against AS Monaco due to a reported ‘knee issue’, and the club has stated that he will undergo further assessment.

The absence of Gabriel Jesus could prove to be a significant setback for Arsenal, as they prepare to face the reigning Premier League champions and FA Cup winners. The 25-year-old striker has been a key player for Arsenal since joining the club, consistently delivering impressive performances and contributing crucial goals.

Arsenal secured their spot in the Community Shield match by finishing second on the Premier League table in the previous season. While they fell short of clinching the league title, their strong performance earned them a place in this prestigious season-opening fixture. On the other hand, Manchester City dominated English football last season by winning both the league title and FA Cup under the guidance of manager Pep Guardiola.

The Community Shield match holds great significance for both teams as it not only marks the beginning of a new football season but also provides an opportunity to claim early silverware. It serves as a traditional curtain-raiser event between the Premier League champions and FA Cup winners.

Gabriel Jesus’ potential absence will undoubtedly be a cause for concern among Arsenal fans, as his presence on the field has often proved decisive in crucial matches. However, Arsenal possesses other talented players who can step up and fill his shoes if necessary. Manager Mikel Arteta will need to devise a strategy that can overcome Manchester City’s formidable lineup without their star striker.

As Gabriel Jesus undergoes assessment for his knee issue, Arsenal fans anxiously await updates on his condition and hope for positive news ahead of their clash with Manchester City in the Community Shield match.

I just love writing and football so much ever since the 2000's when football got popular in our country. I am a self esteemed person who believes is am always right.
