Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has provided an update on the fitness of Bukayo Saka ahead of their clash with Manchester City this weekend. Saka was seen limping in their previous game, raising concerns about his availability for the upcoming match.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Arteta confirmed that Saka is in contention for the game but will need to be assessed further before a final decision is made. The manager expressed optimism about Saka’s recovery but left the details of the injury to the medical team.

“He is in contention, let’s see how he progresses from here to Sunday. Let’s see how he recovers.” Arteta told journalists in his pre-match press conference.

On what the injury is:

“I leave that to the doctors.” said Arteta.

Saka has been a key player for Arsenal this season, contributing four goals and two assists in the Premier League. His absence would be a blow for the Gunners, as they look to secure a positive result against the reigning champions.

Currently sitting in third place on the Premier League table, Arsenal have been in good form this season. Their recent game against Lens in the Champions League may have ended in defeat, but they showed resilience and determination throughout the match.

The clash with Manchester City will be a significant test for Arteta’s side, and having Saka available would undoubtedly boost their chances. The young winger has been influential in attack and his absence would leave a void in Arsenal’s attacking options.

As the match at Emirates Stadium approaches, Arsenal fans will be eagerly awaiting updates on Saka’s fitness. His potential inclusion in the squad would provide a much-needed boost for the Gunners as they aim to secure a victory against one of the league’s top teams.

Regardless of Saka’s availability, Arteta and his team will be preparing meticulously for the challenge posed by Manchester City. The absence of John Stones in City’s defense may provide an opportunity for Arsenal to exploit any weaknesses and put pressure on their opponents.

The clash between Arsenal and Manchester City promises to be an exciting encounter, with both teams eager to secure a positive result. Saka’s potential involvement adds an extra layer of intrigue to the fixture, as fans wait to see if he will be fit to take part in the game.

I just love writing and football so much ever since the 2000's when football got popular in our country. I am a self esteemed person who believes is am always right.
