Arsenal boss manager Mikel Arteta has said that Bukayo Saka’s injury concerns remain to be assessed following the Gunners’ emphatic 4-0 league win against Bournemouth on Saturday (September 30).
The England international’s inclusion in the game was in doubt after he had missed the 1-0 Carabao Cup win over Brentford three days earlier. However, Saka started against The Cherries and also got on the scoresheet, scoring a close-range header in the 17th minute.
After 76 minutes, the 22-year-old winger was replaced by Fabio Vieira after sustaining a few knocks. When asked about Saka’s situation, Arteta said (via Football London):

“I don’t yet, as I haven’t had a chance to speak to him.”
Arsenal fans will hope that the issue isn’t too serious, given Saka’s start to the new season. Across competitions, the youngster has netted five goals and bagged four assists.
