Bukayo Saka injury update as Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta clarifies ‘tough’ Martinelli choice | Football | Sport

Arsenal star Bukayo Saka will be assessed ahead of the Gunners’ Premier League clash with Luton on Wednesday. The winger hobbled off during the second half of Arsenal’s goalless draw with Manchester City on Sunday.

Mikel Arteta’s side have not trained since that game and have only completed recovery sessions in the 48 hours since. Saka will have the chance to prove his fitness in a light training session on Tueday.

Arsenal welcome Luton to the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday and Arteta did not seem too concerned about Saka’s availability. Gabriel Martinelli will also be ready to play 90 minutes after coming off the bench against City.

Asked about Saka, the Spaniard said: “Yeah, he’s fine. Obviously, we haven’t trained, we recovered.

“We will have a short, light session and we’ll see if he is in the best condition to start the game.”

Martinelli had been absent since early March with a foot injury but replaced Saka late on against City. Arteta added on the Brazilian: “He is [available] because he was available to play against a really tough opponent two days ago.”
