Arsenal's Jesus undergoes knee surgery

Gabriel Jesus has undergone surgery to his right knee after suffering an injury during Brazil's World Cup group stage match against Cameroon on Friday.

The striker came off for Brazil during the 1-0 defeat in the 64th minute and it was announced that he will miss the rest of the World Cup with a knee problem.

The news is a problem for Mikel Arteta's Arsenal, who restart their Premier League campaign on Boxing Day when they host West Ham.

The Gunners have Eddie Nketiah as striker back-up while Gabriel Martinelli can also play in a centre-forward role if required.
