His return date has been a question on the minds of all Arsenal fans with Mikel Arteta keeping his cards close to his chest.
However, he told Nurmagomedov that he should be back sooner than expected.
Jesus has said that he should be back in action for the Gunners in around four or five weeks
‘Maybe four or five weeks more I come back,’ he told the Dagestani.
Eddie Nketiah has done a superb job in his absence but there is no doubt the return of Jesus would be a huge boost in the business end of the season.
Nketiah scored twice in the victory over United, including the last-gasp winner, to extend his tally this season to nine goals in all competitions this season.
Arsenal now sit five points clear of nearest challengers Manchester City with a game in hand, exactly halfway through the season.
The Gunners travel to City in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Friday night.
