Arsenal face off with Newcastle United in Saturday’s late Premier League kick-off.
The Gunners are unbeaten in 10 league games and sit two points off top spot. Back Arsenal to beat Newcastle at 6/4 with bet365.
Gabriel Jesus injury blow
Before facing Newcastle, Arsenal have been dealt a rather big blow on the Gabriel Jesus front.
Jesus missed the start of the campaign with a knee injury and then picked up another issue last week in the Champions League vs Sevilla.
Mikel Arteta refused to put a timeline on Jesus’ recovery, admitting he was ‘totally wrong’ last time with the player back sooner than expected.
But it has now been reported that Jesus’ representatives are eyeing a few more weeks on the sidelines before a full return next month after the November international break.
Should Jesus hit his target of a December return, Arsenal and Arteta will be without their first-choice striker for the next six games in all competitions.
This means Eddie Nketiah – who scored a hat-trick vs Sheffield United last week – will likely lead the line for Arsenal over the next month.
You can back Eddie Nketiah to score anytime vs Newcastle at 9/4 with bet365.
