Thierry Henry highlights the only problem with Gabriel Jesus “Unfortunately”

The injury record of the Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus irritates Thierry Henry. The Arsenal legend regards Jesus as a fantastic forward, but believes that his injuries have prevented Arsenal from fully appreciating his talent.

He ran riot against Sevilla in the Champions League on October 24th, scoring and assisting in a 2-1 win. Many Gooners who watched the game must have remarked, “That’s the Gabriel Jesus we always want.” Unfortunately, he suffered a hamstring injury in that game and has been out since.

Now, Henry has criticized his injury record on CBS Sports, saying, “When you see that goal (Jesus’s against Sevilla), that’s a great strike.

“The only problem with Gabriel Jesus is that he often gets injured. Unfortunately for him and us.”

Injuries cannot be planned; they simply occur. It’s sad that Jesus has had to deal with several at Arsenal. He was missing for around 3 months last season owing to an injury he picked up during the World Cup.

He was also injured at the start of this season. Hopefully, when he returns, which is scheduled to be in December (despite being called up to the Brazil squad for this international break), he will be able to stay fit for the rest of the season and help us to that elusive Premier League Trophy…

    1. Havertz has scored 1 goal in his last 21 EPL games… is that considered fortunate as a striker replacement?

        1. Arsenal cannot afford experiments at the moment, havertz has been getting into goal scoring positions and he has shown he cannot score goals at the moment, what difference would it make if he is playing in number 9 position where he equally looks bad

          1. He won’t need to score as long as he can bring his teammates into play. He played the role against Man City in Community Shield

        2. Take care never to bump into Mr Reality, GAI, as it will spoil your flights of fantasy.
          And that will never do.
          Not for you, of all people

  1. The few realists in JA are well aware that no matter HOW talented any player is, IF he is constantly injured, he is of little regular use to us.

    All often injured players reach a career stage when the CONSTANCY of their injuries MUST be weighed against what level of consistent fitness a top side MUST have.

    If we can get that vitally needed level of fitness elsewhere instead, then so be it say I

    1. Couldn’t agree more Jon. He does have a history of injuries, over 4 years at Man City he missed 53 games and he is currently on 23 missed games with us. Great talent but fragile.

  2. Sadly this continues to be the case for Jesus. Seemingly always a knock here, strain or pulled muscle, always something since he has joined us. We need a reliable striker; either with goals or at least fitness, and Jesus is neither.

    If we move Nketiah on, we can bring in a more composed and clinical striker. Jesus can compete with the striker and backup Saka on the RW, which would be great for our Arsenal.

  3. Sadly the careers of three fine Arsenal players in Jesus, Tierney and ESR have been blighted by injury.Injuries are of course part and parcel of professional football but as was the case during the Wenger reign Arsenal seem to get more than their fair share.I just hope the injury to Timber is not career threatening as he could go on to be a great defensive player.

    1. Agree on Timber, he is truly world class and hopefully his injury will heal well and he comes back to his best.

  4. Neither Jesus or the big German can be written off just yet, they both have the potential of leaving eggs on face.

  5. On contrary to beggars belief, Jesus is not injury prone. He was our best player last season until his unnecessary knee injury in the World Cup. And straight he was playing all out after his return to save Arsenal’s season. And EPL defenders kicked him into pieces like they did to Saka and Martinelli. Jesus did not have proper pre-season training this time around and of course he will take some time to gain full fitness. Why suddenly the chaos with this site? Havertz hate, Arteta hate, Jesus hate. What’s more to come?

  6. That is the unfortunate part of Jesus, his injuries. Hopefully, he will overcome them and come back ever stronger. He is a fantastic player, creating, scoring and giving it all for the team cause.
