Gabriel Jesus will undergo a scan in the coming days for a hamstring injury picked up in Sevilla, but he is confident that it is not a serious issue.
The Arsenal forward scored the second of their two goals as they ran out 2-1 winners in Spain to move back top of their Champions League group.
Jesus was then taken off limping in the 81st minute after he seemed to tweak something as he rode a challenge from Boubakary Soumare.
But talking to TNT Sports after the win, Jesus was confident that the hamstring injury was not a serious issue, although the medical team will check to confirm.
The 26-year-old Brazilian said: ‘I felt something. Let’s see. I did some tests with the physio, it looks not that big, but let’s see. I have a scan, maybe tomorrow. I’m pretty sure it will be nothing.’

Arsenal went ahead through Gabriel Martinelli just before half-time, before Jesus extended the lead to 2-0 eight minutes into the second half.
While Nemanja Gudelj scored for Sevilla five minutes later, Arsenal were able to hold on for the valuable win which sent them back top of Group B, which also features Lens and PSV.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta told TNT afterwards that he was ‘very happy to win here’, noting few visiting teams had gone to Sevilla and won in Europe.
On Jesus, Arteta said: ‘He felt something in his hamstring. He straight away asked to be subbed, which is not good news, because he’s not the kind of player who does that. So we’ll have to wait and see in the next few days.’
Arsenal host Sheffield United in the Premier League on Saturday, before a League Cup trip to West Ham four days later.
Their next Champions League outing is the return fixture against Sevilla, with the Spanish club coming to the Emirates on November 8.
