Jesus expected to start vs Leeds

Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus is expected to return to the starting line-up against Leeds United on Sunday, according to David Ornstein.

The Brazilian was spotted limping after the 3-2 win over Liverpool last weekend and he was subsequently out of training in midweek.

Jesus was then rested for the European trip to Bodo/Glimt, but Ornstein firmly believes he will be back in the matchday XI at Elland Road.

He said: "I would imagine that he’ll be starting at Elland Road on Sunday. He’s a very durable player, he doesn’t get tonnes of injuries, Gabriel Jesus, and he goes into some pretty meaty challenges!"

Arsenal are currently top of the Premier League standings with 24 points. They are just one ahead of Manchester City, who are title favourites.

The Gunners will have the chance to extend the advantage on Sunday, but that also depends on Liverpool turning up against Manchester City.

Aside from Jesus, Granit Xhaka, Gabriel Martinelli, Gabriel Magalhaes and Aaron Ramsdale are all expected to return to the XI against Leeds.
