Eddie Nketiah has come in to replace him as Mikel Arteta‘s men continue to top the Premier League.

The Gunners are top points clear of title rivals Manchester City and hold a game in hand.

Arteta said on Jesus: “He’s doing more and more on the field. The knee is not reacting, really positive. He’s pushing the boundaries right now.”

The Spaniard added: “We want him back as quick as possible, but also respecting the timescale that the doctors and the specialists are giving us.”
