Mikel Arteta gives huge update on Arsenal star Bukayo Saka ahead of the premier league clash against Manchester City this weekend

Bukayo Saka suffered yet another injury scare during Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League defeat to RC Lens on Tuesday night.

Saka had started the European clash well, assisting Gabriel Jesus’ opener after just 14 minutes. But his evening ended just 19 minutes later after appearing to pick up some kind of muscle injury, a major worry for the north Londoners ahead of Sunday’s showdown against reigning Premier League champions Manchester City.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Arteta said: “Well he is in contention. Let’s see how he progresses from here to Sunday. He had to leave the pitch that’s never good news but let’s see how he recovers.”
