As Mikel Arteta prepares to host his old club Manchester City, here’s the Arsenal injury news ahead of the match. It features an update on the Bukayo Saka injury.

Arsenal injury news – Bukayo Saka injury forces Arteta to be “cautious”

According to an update from the trusted journalist Charles Watts, Mikel Arteta is forced into acting “cautious” regarding the Bukayo Saka injury. It’s thought that when the England squad is announced today, it’ll provide a greater insight into the injury.

Watts claims that if it’s a hamstring issue, which is what it’s believed to be, then Arteta has to be cautious and potentially rest him against the champions Man City to avoid any further injury concerns.

Arsenal injury news – Gabriel Martinelli could play “some part”

Further news on Gabriel Martinelli’s injury remains to be seen. At face value, it looks like Leandro Trossard is set to start against Manchester City, even if Martinelli does come back in time to play the game. Trossard started against Lens in midweek while Martinelli wasn’t used in any capacity.

According to a claim by 90min, Martinelli “could play some part vs Man City”. However, the report stated that it’s better to wait until concrete news comes out about his situation.

Arsenal injury news – Thomas Partey is available

Ahead of the game vs Man City, Arsenal received some good news with Thomas Partey’s return to action. He was used on the bench against Lens, meaning he is available to play in this weekend’s game. To what extent remains to be seen.
