Arsenal receives major boost ahead of Man City clash
Arsenal have received a major injury boost ahead of their next Premier League clash with Manchester City on October 8.
This comes after forward Bukayo Saka trained with Arsenal on Monday morning following another injury scare with midfielder Thomas Partey joining him after his recent layoff.
Arsenal had defeated Bournemouth 4-0 on Saturday with Saka scoring for the Gunners.
The England international had been an injury doubt having limped off the previous weekend against Tottenham Hotspur and was one of a number of players unable to train ahead of the visit to Bournemouth.
The 22-year-old was seen limping in the second-half against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium and was replaced on 76 minutes by Fabio Vieira.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta explained in his post-match interview that Saka had suffered ‘a bad knock’ during the win against Bournemouth.
Despite the worrying update, Saka trained as normal on Monday ahead of the Man City clash and also their midweek UEFA Champions League tie against RC Lens.
