Bukayo Saka returns to first-team training ahead of Villa tie

Arsenal ace Bukayo Saka returned to first-team training ahead of his side's clash with Aston Villa on Friday. 

Saka picked up an injury during Arsenal's 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace on Monday following a heavy challenge from James McArthur. The England international missed Wednesday training but rejoined the first team for sessions on Thursday evening. 

Earlier today, Arteta had revealed the winger had suffered a minor injury and was set for some tests later. 

"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."
