Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta and his medical team will undoubtedly be sweating with fear on Wednesday as Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus is expected to feature for his country in their game against Argentina. Despite having missed Arsenal’s last five games due to a hamstring injury, Jesus was called up by Brazil and all indicators show that he will start for his national team.

For Arteta and his medical team, this news is concerning. They have been working hard to manage Jesus’ injury and ensure his full recovery before reintroducing him to competitive action. The decision by the Brazilian national team to call him up and potentially start him in a high-intensity match against Argentina puts their plans at risk.

Hamstring injuries can be tricky, and rushing a player back too soon can lead to further complications and setbacks. Arteta and his medical team would have preferred Jesus to continue his rehabilitation with Arsenal, under their careful supervision, rather than risking aggravating the injury in an international fixture.

The fear for Arteta and his medical team is that Jesus may not be fully fit or ready to handle the physical demands of an international match. If he were to suffer a setback or re-injure himself, it could significantly impact Arsenal’s season and their attacking options.

Furthermore, the pressure on Jesus to perform for his country may push him to push himself too hard, potentially exacerbating the injury. This puts Arteta and his medical team in a difficult position, as they must balance the player’s desire to represent his country with their duty to prioritize his long-term health and well-being.

Ultimately, Arteta and his medical team will be hoping that Jesus comes through the international fixture unscathed and returns to Arsenal fully fit and ready to contribute. However, the uncertainty surrounding his injury and the risk of further complications will undoubtedly have them sweating with fear on Wednesday.
