Arsenal's Jesus out of World Cup with knee injury, could miss PL restart

Gabriel Jesus will miss the rest of Brazil's World Cup campaign with a knee injury and is a doubt for the Premier League restart with Arsenal later this month.

The striker picked up the injury during Friday's 1-0 defeat against Cameroon and came off in the 64th minute.

A statement from the Brazilian FA read: "As announced by the Brazilian FA after the game against Cameroon, players Alex Telles and Gabriel Jesus underwent tests on Saturday morning. Accompanied by the Brazilian National Team doctor, Rodrigo Lasmar, they underwent an MRI on the right knee that confirmed the injuries and the impossibility of recovery in time to participate in the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.

"The coordinator of the Brazilian National Team, Juninho Paulista, is in contact with the sports directors of Arsenal and Sevilla to define whether Alex Telles and Gabriel Jesus remain with the squad in Doha to continue the treatment or return to their clubs."
