Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has provided an update on the fitness of Bukayo Saka ahead of their upcoming Premier League match against Bournemouth. Saka missed Arsenal’s previous game and there were concerns about his availability for the upcoming fixture.

Arteta revealed that the decision to include Saka in the squad will depend on his fitness and readiness to contribute to the team. The young winger has not trained with the team so far, which raises doubts about his involvement in the match.

“The assessment is, ‘okay, is he fit enough & good enough to be able to be selected tomorrow?’, that’s the question mark & so far he hasn’t trained with the team.” Arteta told Arsenal’s official website.

However, Arteta emphasized the importance of Saka feeling good and being ready to play. He acknowledged that players always want to be on the pitch and contribute to the team’s success. Arteta also highlighted Saka’s growing experience and understanding of when he is ready to help the team.

Arsenal will be hoping to bounce back from their recent draw against Tottenham Hotspur and continue their push for a top-four finish. They have had a solid start to the season, currently sitting in fifth place with 14 points. A victory against Bournemouth would help them maintain their momentum and climb up the Premier League table.

On the other hand, Bournemouth have had a disappointing start to their campaign, sitting in 17th place with just 3 points. They will be desperate for a positive result against Arsenal to improve their position and boost their confidence.

The absence of Bukayo Saka could be a blow for Arsenal, as he has been an important player for them this season. However, Arteta will have to find a suitable replacement to maintain the team’s performance and defensive stability.

Arsenal fans will be eagerly awaiting updates on Saka’s availability and hoping for a successful outcome in their upcoming match against Bournemouth. A victory would not only help the Gunners maintain their momentum but also keep them in the hunt for a top-four finish.
