Arteta gives injury updates on Saka, Martinelli ahead of Arsenal vs Luton


Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, is expecting to have Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli fit for the visit of Luton Town on Wednesday night.

Saka limped out of their 0-0 draw at Manchester City on Sunday and was replaced by Martinelli, who just recovered from a foot injury.

Arteta, speaking to reporters today, said both players should be available for selection.

On Saka, the Spaniard said: “He’s fine. We haven’t trained, we’ve recovered and there will be a short, light session to prepare for the game.

“We will see if he’s in the best condition to start or not.”

When asked about Martinelli, he replied: “He is [available to play for 90 minutes] because he was available to play against a really tough opponent and he certainly is today.

“We will train today, see the state of every player and make the right decision tomorrow.”
