Arsenal blow with Saka an injury doubt for Aston Villa clash

Saka was forced off with an injury in Monday’s 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace following a strong challenge from James McArthur.

The England international has not trained this week and Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has confirmed he faces a late fitness test ahead of the game against Villa.

“He hasn’t trained yet, so we have to assess him today and see how he is,” said Arteta.

“I am not a betting man and it is down to the doctors and himself to see how he recovers and how he feels when he trains today and tomorrow. He is very important, he has shown how important he is for the team.

“We have a training session today, we had two or three players who finished the game [against Crystal Palace] with some issues, and we had to assess them today.”
