Mikel Arteta has admitted that Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus picked up an injury against Sevilla tonight.

Jesus starred for Arsenal on Tuesday night as he helped his team to a 2-1 win in Seville.

The 26-year-old produced an exceptional assist in the first half as Gabriel Martinelli opened the scoring right before halftime.

He then doubled Arsenal’s advantage in right at the start of the second half with a superb finish after cutting in from the left-hand side.

But the Brazil star was forced off later in the game as he was replaced by Eddie Nketiah after clutching his hamstring.

Speaking to TNT Sports, Arteta was asked whether Jesus was taken off simply as a precaution.

“No,” the Arsenal boss responded. “He felt something in his hamstring. So, let’s see.”

“He straight away asked to be subbed which is not good news as Gabi isn’t a player who does that at all,” Arteta added. “So we have to wait and see in the next few days.”
