'He's limping right now': Arteta has worrying injury news to share with Arsenal fans
Mikel Arteta has said to Football London that Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka may have picked up an injury against West Bromwich Albion.
Saka was taken off during Arsenal’s 6-0 win at the Hawthorns, and he looked in pain at the time.
Saka was only able to limp off the field, in what was a worrying sight for Arsenal fans.
And although Arteta didn’t go as far as to confirm what was wrong with Saka, he did admit that the youngster was in pain.
“Yeah, I think he got hit in the knee. He was sore and he’s limping right now. Hopefully he’s going to be okay,” Arteta said.
Saka had put in an excellent performance for Arsenal during the contest, before going off.
The teenager scored his first goal of the season with a fine finish, and looked a major threat throughout.
Arsenal’s win was much needed, as a defeat could have been disastrous.
Arsenal had not scored all season before last night’s game, but they looked a real threat going forward, with Martin Odegaard’s creativity clearly helping.
The Gunners will though face tougher tests than playing against West Brom, who named a very inexperienced line-up for the contest.
Arsenal are set to take on Manchester City at the weekend, and everyone at the club will be desperate for Saka to recover in time to play in that contest.
