Arsenal and Brazil forward Gabriel Jesus showed off his new crutches as his recovery from knee surgery begins.
  • Jesus injured during World Cup
  • Forward had to have surgery on knee
  • Will be out for around a month

WHAT HAPPENED? The 25-year-old damaged his knee during Brazil's group stage game against Cameroon, ruling him out of the rest of the World Cup. He underwent knee surgery this week and video of him walking around on crutches emerged on social media.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The ex-Manchester City player will be out for up to a month, meaning he could miss four matches for Arsenal when the Premier League returns in late December.

WHAT NEXT FOR JESUS? The forward will be desperate to return to action as soon as possible. He will miss matches against West Ham, Brighton and Newcastle, but the Gunners will be hoping he is fit to feature against Tottenham on January 15.
