Arsenal waiting on Saka

Bukayo Saka will undergo a late fitness test ahead of Saturday evening’s game at Brighton and Hove Albion.

Saka was left out of the Arsenal squad for Wednesday’s 2-0 win at home to Luton Town after picking up a muscle injury during the goalless draw at Manchester City last weekend, but Mikel Arteta is hopeful he will be available for selection.

“We will know with our training session in a few hours,” he said at his press conference on Friday morning. “We will know whether he is fit or not.”
