Gabriel Jesus set for shock Wembley return

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed that Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus could be part of the team to take on Arsenal in their FA Cup semi-final at Wembley on Sunday.

The 23-year-old was expected to be out for the rest of the season when he broke a metatarsal against Bournemouth in February, but now it seems Jesus will be making a miraculous return.

"He's really, really much, much better," Guardiola revealed, according to the Daily Mail. 

"He will take part in training with us. He's coming back with his happiness and we are so happy he's back again," said the Spaniard.

"We are going to travel with all the squad to Wembley, all the group,  and he will be part of that. After that, we will see."

Whether or not Jesus starts against the Arsenal, Guardiola will only decide after the first semi-final between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.
