Bukayo Saka: Arsenal midfielder set to undergo scan on muscular injury, says head coach Mikel Arteta

Bukayo Saka is set to undergo a scan on a “muscular” injury after limping off during Arsenal’s 2-0 victory over Newcastle on Saturday.

Saka gave Arsenal the lead after 56 minutes but was forced off eight minutes later, after going down and pointing to his left thigh.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta provided limited details on Saka during his post-match press conference, but the 20-year-old’s participation in Thursday’s clash with Manchester United now appears uncertain.

“It was an action where he said that he felt something,” Arteta said.

“He wasn’t comfortable to continue and we’ll have to assess him tomorrow and probably scan him and see if there’s an injury there.”

Saka was replaced by Gabriel Martinelli, who sealed the victory with Arsenal’s second goal just 93 seconds after coming off the bench.

Arteta has used Saka in all 13 of Arsenal’s Premier League games this season, but the England winger could now be a doubt for Thursday’s visit to Old Trafford, with a trip to Everton following four days later, live on Sky Sports.
