Arsenal handed Saka injury boost ahead of Chelsea clash
Bukayo Saka, a winger for Arsenal, might be able to play against Chelsea on Sunday.
The Gunners are hopeful the 21-year-old has not sustained a serious injury, according to The UK Sun.
During Sunday's 5-0 demolition of Nottingham Forest, Saka assisted Gabriel Martinelli's goal just four minutes into the contest but was removed after 30 minutes.
Following a strong challenge from Renan Lodi, he initially received treatment on the field before being removed ten minutes later.
Saka immediately made his way to the exit, and his replacement, Reiss Nelson, scored twice in the second half.
The England star's ability to leave the Emirates without the aid of crutches or a protective boot was encouraging.
Although he is anticipated to sit out of Arsenal's Europa League match against FC Zurich on Thursday, he might play at Stamford Bridge the following weekend.
