'Who else zoomed in': Some Arsenal fans erupt over who they've spotted in training today
A number of Arsenal fans have welcomed the latest Gunners training-ground pics, with Bukayo Saka involved once again.
The 20-year-old was forced off in Monday’s 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace following a controversial challenge from James McArthur.
On Thursday morning, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta said Saka hadn’t trained this week up until then, and would face a late fitness test.
“He hasn’t trained yet, so we have to assess him today and see how he is,” said Arteta.
Arsenal posted training pictures from Thursday later on in the day, and luckily, Saka was involved.
Needless to say, Arsenal fans were buzzing:
