Saka set to undergo scan on muscular injury

Bukayo Saka is set to undergo a scan on a “muscular” injury after limping off during Arsenal’s 2-0 victory over Newcastle on Saturday.

Saka gave Arsenal the lead after 56 minutes but was forced off eight minutes later, after going down and pointing to his left thigh.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta provided limited details on Saka during his post-match press conference, but the 20-year-old’s participation in Thursday’s clash with Manchester United now appears uncertain.

“It was an action where he said that he felt something,” Arteta said.

“He wasn’t comfortable to continue and we’ll have to assess him tomorrow and probably scan him and see if there’s an injury there.”
