Both Bukayo Saka and Thomas Partey, according to manager Mikel Arteta of Arsenal, are in the running to play against Manchester City on Sunday.
On Tuesday night, when the Gunners were losing 2-1 to Lens in the Champions League, Saka left the game with an injury.
Arteta confirmed that the England winger had a “muscular” problem and that it was a “worry” as he lay on the ground grasping his leg.
Arteta, though, remarked Friday during his press conference, “He is in contention.
Let’s watch his development between now and Sunday.
Having to leave the field is never good news, but we’ll see how he does once he gets back on his feet.
Arteta also said Thomas Partey, who had been out with a groin injury, would be fit to play in the showdown between first and second place.
The Ghanaian midfielder, who last played in August, was left on the bench for the 2-1 defeat to Lens and did not see any action.
There’s no doubt that he’s ahead of schedule. On Tuesday, we had too many pressing needs to schedule a game against him. Arteta confirmed that he would be playing for the team against Manchester City.
