Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has said they face a nervous wait on the fitness of Bukayo Saka.

Saka was taken off during the second half of the Gunners’ 2-0 win over Newcastle United at home.

The England star had opened the scoring just before the hour mark but was later taken off for Gabriel Martinelli.

With a huge midweek match at Manchester United on the horizon, Arsenal will be hoping he makes a swift return.

“It was an action where he said he felt something. He wasn’t comfortable to continue,” Arteta told reporters when quizzed on Saka’s fitness.

“We will have to assess him tomorrow and probably scan him to see if there is an injury there. He felt something muscular, we will see what it is.”
