Mikel Arteta has played down fears that Bukayo Saka picked up a serious injury in Arsenal’s 0-0 draw with Brighton.
The England international went down clutching his right leg in the closing stages at the AMEX and was replaced by Ainsley Maitland-Niles.
While the player hobbled to the sidelines with a hand from the medical team, it didn’t look great.
Asked about the situation after the match, Arteta told Arsenal.com: “He got knocked, so they will check him. I don’t know how it is yet but he was able to walk so I don’t think it’s that bad.”
Saka is due to meet up with Gareth Southgate’s England squad tomorrow ahead of World Cup qualification matches with Andorra and Hungary.
If there are any doubts over his fitness, you suspect we’ll pull him out.
