Paul Merson Arsenal legend, has said the unexpected return of Gabriel Jesus’ from injury could cause problems at the club.

The Brazil international picked up a knee injury during the World Cup in December and had to undergo surgery.

In his absence, Eddie Nketiah has started upfront for Arsenal, while Leandro Trossard also arrived from Brighton.

Merson has now hinted at selection headaches for Arteta.

He told Sky Sports: “Gabriel Jesus coming back is a bit of a problem for Arsenal because the lad will want to play – he didn’t sign to be a bit-part player like he was at Man City.
