Former Manchester City defender Micah Richards has claimed that. Arsenal‘s loss of striker Gabriel Jesus has hurt the club’s chances of winning the title this season.

The 26-year-old striker will miss the start of the season after undergoing minor knee surgery last month. Which if you go back to last season. The Brazilian star was also injured at the World Cup and did not feature for months. Even when I came back, I still didn’t see a hundred percent.

Although Mikel Arteta said that Jesus was only out for 2-3 weeks. Richards’ lack of a key striker was a huge blow to the club.

“The potential of Manchester City’s team is better than other teams. They won’t get another treble. But they will win the Premier League.” Richards told BBC Sport UFABET

“I almost picked Arsenal to win the title. Because no team has won the championship 4 years in a row before. But they didn’t have Gabriel Jesus at the start of the season. Which I think ruined their chances.

Most recently, Arteta revealed that one of his key players, Jesus had to rest. and likely to miss both of those games as well “He had a problem this morning. He was unfortunately injured.”

“He felt an abnormality in his knee. which forced him to stop practicing. And probably will have to rest for 2-3 weeks together.
