EPL: Arteta gives injury update on Saka ahead of Southampton clash

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has said Bukayo Saka is okay after he received treatment during their Europa League victory over PSV Eindhoven.

Granit Xhaka scored the only goal in the 71st minute on Thursday night.

Saka almost made it 2-0 after a driving run through the PSV defence, but his effort was saved by Walter Benitez.

While bursting through, Saka was kicked on the back of the leg and required treatment on the pitch.

Arteta resisted the temptation to take off the England forward, with Gabriel Martinelli and Ben White instead introduced shortly after.

After the match at the Emirates, Arteta calmed any fears over an injury, telling BT Sport: “I think he is okay, I think he will be ok.”

Arsenal are away to Southampton on Sunday in the Premier League.
