Arsenal suffer injury scare against Sevilla as Gabriel Jesus went down injured holding his hamstring before getting replaced

Arsenal secured a 2-1 victory over Sevilla in their third Champions League group game of 2023-24 on Tuesday night but appeared to have been dealt a huge injury blow during the game.

Brazil international striker Gabriel Jesus provided a brilliant assist for Gabriel Martinelli before finding the back of the net with an equally brilliant solo effort.

However, he went down holding his hamstring in the closing stages of the game and was replaced by Eddie Nketiah.

He made it to the bench and did not go straight into the dressing room for treatment, which could end up being a positive thing for Arsenal.

The former Manchester City striker has been in fine form in the Champions League this term, with three goals and one assist to his name in three appearances thus far, and the Gunners cannot afford to lose him to an injury right now.

Arsenal return to action on Saturday when they host Sheffield United in their tenth Premier League game of the season and will be desperate to return to winning ways after drawing 2-2 against Chelsea last Saturday.

The North Londoners have suffered several injury blows so far this term, and they cannot afford to be without another key player right now.

Jesus missed the start of the season after undergoing surgery and will be gutted to have gone down injured tonight.

Medical tests will be carried out on him to determine the extent of the knock, and manager Mikel Arteta will hope it is nothing serious.
