Bukayo Saka remains a doubt for Arsenal’s trip to Manchester United in the Premier League on Thursday night, although the Gunners are hopeful that no serious damage was done at the weekend.
The 20-year-old scored in Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Newcastle on Saturday but then limped out of the contest just after the hour mark.
The thigh problem is not thought to be serious and his substitution was precautionary.
Mikel Arteta said after the win: “It was an action where he said he felt something muscular.
“He wasn’t comfortable to continue and we’ll have to assess him.”
