Gabriel Jesus and Leandro Trossard could feature for Arsenal this afternoon against Fulham having returned from injury earlier in the week.

According to Goal, the attacking duo are in contention for Mikel Arteta’s side ahead of their London derby against the Cottagers, with Arsenal needing a win if they’re to return to five points clear at the top of the Premier League standings after Manchester City’s 1-0 victory against Crystal Palace.

With Fulham in flying form this season, Arsenal’s trip to Craven Cottage could be a hard one for the north London side. However, the returns of Jesus and Trossard will be massive if the Gunners are to make it five Premier League wins in a row.

The Brazilian international has been out injured since the 2022 FIFA World Cup, whilst Trossard came off against AFC Bournemouth, resulting in the winger missing Arsenal’s 2-2 draw against Sporting Lisbon in the UEFA Europa League.

Arsenal’s quest to win the Premier League will boil down to matching every single one of City’s results and bettering the Manchester giants on the rare occasion they slip up, and with the Etihad Stadium side winning 1-0 this weekend, the Gunners have to get the job done against Fulham.

Thankfully, this piece of late injury news could be a lifesaver for Arsenal, with Jesus arguably the club’s most important attacker whilst Trossard has brought an incredible amount of quality depth in the frontline since his arrival in the January transfer window.

Indeed, the duo were missed dearly on Thursday in Arsenal’s frustrating 2-2 draw against Sporting, yet with Jesus and Trossard now back from injury and in contention to feature against Fulham, the Gunners could have all the tools needed to get a result against Marco Silva’s side.

Jesus and Trossard’s returns have come at the perfect time for Arsenal, and the Gunners will be hoping that the pair can make an impact against Fulham should things go off-route for the north London side on their visit to Craven Cottage later today.
