In today’s Arsenal injury news – Mikel Arteta has provided a bit more light on the Bukayo Saka injury “worry” ahead of the Manchester City match.

Arsenal face Manchester City in the Premier League this weekend. It’s by far their most important match of the season so far as if things go Mikel Arteta’s way, then his side could climb to top of the table for the first time this season, after spending the majority of last season in this position.

Certainly, the Gunners have started the season well, remaining unbeaten in the Premier League. Arteta will hope that his loss against Lens in the Champions League was nothing but a blip, and his players will bounce back against the champions at the weekend.

Speaking after the Lens match, Arteta confirmed that he didn’t regret starting Saka, who came off injured in the match, since in the buildup to the match it was only a knock.

However, according to the Independent, Mikel Arteta has confirmed the Bukayo Saka injury is a muscular one. Since it forced the England international off the pitch, which is an uncommon occurrence, Mikel Arteta has confirmed it is a worry.

Although, since the Spanish boss admitted he doesn’t know too much about the injury, there is still hope that Saka could be fit for Sunday’s match against Manchester City. Saka will certainly hope to play.

In other news, Arsenal are attempting a huge in-house deal for their £50m defender.
