Arsenal injury update: Eddie Nketiah, Jurrien Timber and Gabriel Jesus latest news and return dates

Arsenal welcome Manchester United this weekend in another huge Premier League clash.

The Gunners were dealt an early title blow against Fulham on Saturday after being held to a 2-2 draw at the Emirates Stadium.

While that may seem hyperbolic at this early stage of the campaign, the standards Manchester City have set mean Mikel Arteta cannot countenance dropping more points.

United, despite an underwhelming start to the season, will offer a stern test.

With that in mind, here’s a look at the latest on Arsenal injuries

Eddie Nketiah

Nketiah has scored twice this season and looked to have secured a dramatic win on Saturday. Coming into his own as a starting option, concern was raised when reports emerged after the game that he’d picked up a knee injury but that is believed to be wide of the mark.

Potential return date: Sunday 3 September 2023 vs Manchester United

Gabriel Jesus

Another big boost for Arsenal is the return of Gabriel Jesus. The Brazilian came on in stoppage time against Fulham and could perhaps be in contention to start against United.

Potential return date: Sunday 3 September 2023 vs Manchester United

Mohamed Elneny

Mohamed Elneny is back in training following surgery on a serious knee injury but is not expected to be involved in a while.

Potential return date: Unknown

Jurrien Timber

Summer signing Jurrien Timber suffered an ACL injury on his Premier League debut and faces a race against time to feature again this season.

Potential return date: Summer 2024
