Mikel Arteta has confirmed that Bukayo Saka was substituted off against Newcastle after complaining of a muscular issue.
The England international went down holding his left leg not long after breaking the deadlock in Arsenal’s 2-0 win and looks likely to be a doubt for our trip to Old Trafford.
Asked for an update on the winger in his post-game press conference, the boss said: “It was an action where he said that he felt something.
“He wasn’t comfortable to continue. We’ll have to assess him tomorrow and probably scan him to see if there’s any injury there.
“He felt something muscular and let’s see what it is.”
Gabriel Martinelli replaced Saka and scored with just his second touch. The Brazilian will be hoping his impact earns him what would be just a third Premier League start on Thursday.
