Arsenal have confirmed that Bukayo Saka will be available for Saturday’s clash with West Bromwich Albion.
The England international, who provided the assist for Alex Lacazette’s match-winning strike, had to be subbed off against Brighton with 15 minutes remaining after taking a kick to his ankle. It looked quite serious at first so it’s a relief to hear he’s already back in training.
The Gunners’ medical team have also confirmed that Brazilian duo Willian and David Luiz are in contention have both overcome illness.
Gabriel, who tested positive for Covid-19 last week, continues to self-isolate but is hoping to return to training next week. He should be joined by Thomas Partey who is making good progress with his rehab following a persistent thigh injury.
Hopefully, both will be available for our FA Cup 3rd round clash with Newcastle on 9 January.
