Major boost for Liverpool as Arsenal talisman could miss big game between the two clubs

Major boost for Liverpool as Arsenal talisman could miss big game between the two clubs

Arsenal's Gabriel Jesus could miss the Gunners fixture against Liverpool

Arsenal don’t face Liverpool for another three weeks, but some of their fans are already fearing they will be without their talisman forward Gabriel Jesus for the encounter.

 This is because the Brazil striker is just one yellow card away from receiving a one-match ban.

To date in the Premier League this term, he has received 4 yellows. If he receives another caution, he’ll become the second player in the division to be forced to miss a game.

Joao Palhinha became the first to be banned this weekend after receiving a booking against Nottingham Forest.

And it wouldn’t be at all surprising if Jesus were to pick up a yellow in Arsenal’s next league fixture.

Next up in the Premier League for an in-form Arsenal is the first North London derby of the season. They welcome Spurs to the Emirates Stadium on 1st October.

From a Liverpool perspective, they’ll be very much hoping Jesus picks up another caution during the contest.

Jesus has been excellent for Arsenal since signing for the Gunners from Manchester City during the summer transfer period.

 


He’s managed to grab himself 7 goal contributions from 7 Premier League starts this term.

And when he isn’t available for selection, the drop off in quality at Arsenal is stark. Eddie Nketiah has been handed the task of playing second fiddle to the Brazilian this season.

Nketiah has looked sharp when handed opportunities, but whether he has the quality to trouble a side like Liverpool is still up for debate.

Regardless of Jesus’ availability, Arsenal will be confident of causing a potential upset when Jurgen Klopp's side travel to North London in a few weeks.

The Gunners have of course won all of their Premier League games bar one this season, while Liverpool have looked far from themselves.

And if Liverpool want to step back into the title race, beating the current League leaders will be viewed as something of a necessity.
