Arsenal winger, Bukayo Saka has developed a foot injury ahead of the club’s Carabao Cup third-round game against Brentford on Wednesday, September 27.
This means that the 22-year-old Nigerian-born England international will not be available for the game and is likely to miss the Premier League game against Bournemouth on Saturday.
Bukayo Saka sustained the injury during the North London derby at the Emirates Stadium last weekend between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur which ended in a 2-2 draw.
During the game, coach Mikel Arteta replaced him with Emile Smith Rowe in injury time and he was seen limping off the pitch.
Ahead of the Carabao Cup game against Brentford at 7:45 p.m. on Wednesday, Mikel Arteta said, “He was limping quite badly after the match.
“We had to get him off the field, which is never a good sign.”
On whether the Nigerian-born British winger would miss the Premier League game against Bournemouth next weekend, the Spanish tactician said: “It’s a possibility, yes.”
So far this season, Bukayo Saka has scored four goals and provided three assists in 7 games in all competitions including the Premier League and the Champions League.
Other major players on Arsenal’s injury list include Jurrien Timber, Thomas Partey, Leandro Trossard, and Gabriel Martinelli.
