The good news for manager Mikel Arteta is that he has a huge player back on the training ground: Gabriel Jesus. The star striker has missed plenty of action this season due to his knee injury suffered around three months ago. However, he indeed is back at practice and will be ready to make a splash late in the campaign.

Gabriel Jesus is ready to return from his serious knee injury
Jesus, who won four EPL titles with Manchester City, is looking sharp in training. Obviously, Arteta and the rest of the coaching staff are going to want to be patient with him and not rush him back out onto the pitch too early for a game. They must take their time.
However, Jesus looks close to 100 percent with his injured knee, and that alone is fantastic news for the Gunners. When you take a look at the EPL table, it really is a two-team race between Arsenal and City.
The Gunners are at the top spot with their 63 points, but MCFC is right behind them with 58. This is a battle that's going to go all the way to the final game of the campaign.
If Arsenal wants to get the job done, then there's no question that Jesus will need to play a major role in things. Thankfully for Arteta and Co., the Brazilian star is on his way back to make a splash and the timing is perfect for the squad.
