ARSENAL fans have worried about the return of Gabriel Jesus after an optical illusion from a training photo.
In the social media snap, Jesus is engaged in full contact training but his right leg appears to be withered.
And this has caused concern among the club’s fanbase, who had hoped he would return to action soon.
One tweeted: “I’m not going to lie, I’m concerned about how much Gabriel Jesus’ leg withered during his time on the sidelines.”
A second commented: “Didn’t know Arsenal had Dr. Nick Riviera as an on-call doctor.”
Jesus has been on a break since the World Cup after knee surgery.
However, upon closer inspection, it can be seen that the “withered leg” is actually another player’s arm.
Which led to some eagle-eyed fans joking about the odd picture.
One said: “VAR will have a field day and give pens against us for handball if GJ clear kicks the ball out of a corner.”
Another joked: “How do these boots fit? ‘They fit like a glove’.”

The two battled for the ball and got caught in a tangle, allowing fans to relax and take comfort that Jesus should be back in action soon.
He was left out of the Gunner’s Europa League squad last night and manager Mikel Arteta insisted the club will not push him back.
He said: “We will try not to push him back, we will try to make a fair assessment between what he needs and when he is comfortable.
“Everything is going well, he needs time to build up confidence and physical fitness to compete with a clear head.”
Eddie Nketiah has stepped in for the former Man City striker and scored some key goals in Arsenal’s title challenge.
