Arsenal suffer major injury blow ahead of the biggest week of their season

Posted by

Mikel Arteta has been left sweating over the fitness of Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka after the teenager suffered a thigh injury against Sheffield United.

While Arteta would never ideally like to be relying on teenagers to pull his team through difficult moments, Saka has been the player that Arsenal have turned to when in need this campaign.

The England international has stepped up in what has been a season to forget for talisman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, establishing himself as one of the best young players in the country.

Bukayo Saka has been brilliant for Arsenal so far this campaign.

It’s for that reason that Arteta will have been so concerned when Saka limped off the field of play injured yesterday, with the winger later spotted with ice strapped to his thigh.

Arsenal have arguably the biggest game of their season against Slavia Prague on Thursday, and at current, it looks doubtful that their player of the season is going to be available to feature.
