Arsenal’s Injury Updates: Saka Fit, Partey Still Recovering
Return of Saka Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has confirmed that Bukayo Saka is fit to play against Everton on Sunday.
Reports had surfaced suggesting that Saka was nursing an Achilles problem after being on the bench for England’s win over Scotland and playing the final 19 minutes, however, Arteta reassured fans that the winger is in good shape and trained normally on Friday in preparation for the match.
“Every player has always pains or issues, but nothing to worry about,” said Arteta regarding Saka’s fitness.
Partey’s Prolonged Absence On the other hand, Arsenal will continue to be without Thomas Partey this weekend.
