Arteta gives injury update on Saka ahead of Southampton clash
Bukayo Saka received treatment during Arsenal's Europa League victory over PSV Eindhoven, and manager Mikel Arteta has stated that he is fine.
On Thursday night, Granit Xhaka scored the game's lone goal in the 71st minute.
After breaking through the PSV defense with a driving run, Saka came close to making it 2-0, but Walter Benitez stopped him.
Saka needed treatment on the field after being kicked in the back of the leg while breaking through.
Arteta resisted the urge to replace the England forward, and shortly after, Gabriel Martinelli and Ben White were substituted in.
After the match at the Emirates, Arteta calmed any fears over an injury, telling BT Sport: “I think he is okay, I think he will be okay.”
Arsenal are away to Southampton on Sunday in the Premier League.
