Mikel Arteta says Bukayo Saka hasn’t trained since Monday’s draw with Crystal Palace.
The England international was on the receiving end of a reckless kick by James McArthur in Monday night’s 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace and had to be substituted at half time.
Speaking in his pre-game press conference, the boss confirmed that he has two to three players struggling with issues ahead of Friday’s game with Aston Villa and that he’ll know more about availability after today’s training session.
He wouldn’t be drawn on who else were doubts.
The only other confirmed injury is Granit Xhaka who is in the early stages of his rehabilitation following the knee ligament damage sustained in the north London derby.
