The latest on Bukayo Saka’s fitness

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has provided an update on Bukayo Saka's fitness ahead of Friday evening's Premier League clash against Aston Villa. 

Saka was taken off at halftime on Monday night after a heavy challenge from Crystal Palace’s James McArthur. 

Speaking ahead of the match, Arteta further revealed some other players picked minor injuries and will be assessed before the clash. 

"He hasn’t trained yet, so again we have to assess him today and see how he is," Mikel Arteta said in his pre-match press conference.
 
"It is down to the doctors and himself to see how he recovers and how he feels when he trains today and tomorrow.
 
"He is very important, he has shown how important he is for the team."

The Gunners are currently 12th on the standings on 11 points, while their opponents are a place below them on 10.
