Mikel Arteta provides fresh injury update on Bukayo Saka

Arteta unsure over Bukayo Saka’s fitness

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has provided a fresh injury update on Bukayo Saka ahead of the Premier League clash at West Ham United on Sunday.

The England international sustained a hamstring injury midway through the north London derby, where the Gunners won by a 2-1 scoreline.

He subsequently missed the midweek Europa League tie against Olympiacos and may require a late fitness test to face the Hammers.

In a press conference today, Arteta said that the attacker’s fitness will be assessed ahead of the London derby against David Moyes‘ side.

« Regarding [Bukayo Saka], in the next two days, we will know if he is available to play against West Ham and after that we will make the decision on what to do, » he told Arsenal.com.

Saka has bagged six goals and six assists from 34 appearances for the Gunners and he has played in the build-up of several other goals.

The Gunners are presently 10 points off the top four, but they have a good chance of reducing the gap with the game in hand against the Hammers.
