The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are fearing the worst ahead of their FA Cup clash with Man City, but it appears as though they have received a boost in the lead-up to the game…
As per Ben Dinnery on Twitter, Gabriel Jesus is likely to miss Man City’s clash against Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-final, with the Brazilian still struggling to regain his fitness.
Of course, he suffered an injury just a few weeks after arriving in the Premier League, leaving many in the pub fearing that Man City’s title hopes were over.
See the Tweet alongside Guardiola’s quote below…

This has come as a big boost to those in the Transfer Tavern, with Jesus undoubtedly one of Man City’s greatest threats. He made a real impact following his move to the Premier League, and his absence will certainly make the game easier for Arsene Wenger.
Indeed, this news has left the Man City fans sweating somewhat. Sergio Aguero hasn’t had a particularly great season, and Jesus looked like the perfect player to take up his mantle. It seems, though, that Guardiola will have to prepare without the Brazilian sensation.
