Is Bukayo Saka set for a spell on the sidelines? Mikel Arteta gives update on star Arsenal winger aft

Saka opened the scoring as the Gunners put the Premier League leaders to the sword at the Emirates Stadium, but was substituted late on after receiving treatment for an injury. Arteta, however, did not seem concerned and does not expect to lose the England star for any significant length of time. The Spaniard was more concerned over an injury sustained by full-back Oleksandr Zinchenko, who seemed to aggravate a pre-existing calf issue.

Speaking after the game, Arteta appeared optimistic about Saka, as he told reporters: "He should be fine. He got a kick I think on the ankle or on the back of his foot, but he should be fine."

On Zinchenko, the Arsenal boss seemed a lot more uncertain. "With Alex (Zinchenko), we don't know," Arteta added. "He had this feeling in his calf again and we had to take him off."
