Arsenal striker Bukayo Saka is injured ahead of Sunday’s match against Man City, which is shown live on Sky Sports.
After hobbling off against Lens, Bukayo Saka, who has started 87 of Arsenal’s Premier League games, may be questionable for Sunday’s matchup with Man City.
Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, called forward Bukayo Saka’s injury “a worry” prior to Sunday’s Premier League encounter, which will be televised live on Sky Sports.
Tuesday night, during Arsenal’s Champions League Group B encounter against Lens in France, Saka hobbled out while holding his leg.
After setting up Gabriel Jesus’ game-winning goal, the 22-year-old was substituted by Fabio Vieira in the 34th minute. Vieira became the first player in Europe’s top five divisions to have five goals and five assists this season.
TV 2 Sport in Norway questioned Arteta about the injury, to which she answered, “It doesn’t look good.”
“In the first half, he attempted to backheel a ball,” Arteta continued. He had a sensation. It was strong. We had to remove him since he was in discomfort.
More information than that is unknown to us. We are concerned as it was significant enough to prevent him from playing the remainder of the game.”
When asked if Saka would be available to play City, Arteta said, “I have no idea.” I’m not sure.
