Bukayo Saka: Arsenal midfielder set for examination for muscle injury, says head coach Mikel Arteta | Football news
Bukayo Saka is set to undergo an examination over a ‘muscle’ injury after limping in Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Newcastle on Saturday.
Saka gave Arsenal the lead after 56 minutes but was forced out eight minutes later after falling and pointing his left thigh.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta provided limited details on Saka in his post-match press conference, but the 20-year-old’s participation in Thursday’s clash with Manchester United now looks uncertain.
“It was an action where he said he felt something,” Arteta said.
“He wasn’t comfortable continuing and we’ll have to assess him tomorrow and probably scan him and see if there’s an injury there. «
Saka was replaced by Gabriel Martinelli, who sealed the victory with Arsenal’s second goal just 93 seconds after coming off the bench.
Arteta has used Saka in Arsenal’s 13 Premier League games this season, but the England winger could now be in doubt for Thursday’s visit to Old Trafford, with a trip to Everton four days later , live Air sports.
