Saka cleared to play Arsenal’s next match, despite being kicked against Crystal Palace

Arsenal has been boosted by the news that Bukayo Saka could return to their starting XI for their match against Aston Villa this weekend, as reported by The Sun.

Mikel Arteta subbed him off in the game against Crystal Palace after James McArthur hit him on the back of his leg.

The referee did not send the Eagles’ midfielder off to the disappointment of Arsenal’s fans and Arteta.

The Gunners had feared that Saka would suffer a long-term injury, but after treatment and assessment by the Arsenal medical department, he has now been cleared to play in their next game.

This news will come as a boost to Arsenal, with the Gunners looking to build on their current unbeaten run.

Saka has proven to be a reliable player at the Emirates and his absence would have left a void in their team.

Arteta can now add him to his plans for their next few matches and Saka will want to get some goals or assists when he takes to the field for the Gunners this Friday against Aston Villa.

The Villans are one of the toughest sides to face in the Premier League and are it would be a tough fixture for Arsenal.

  1. let’s hope that was the kick up the backside he’s needed for quite some time, as he’s been rather underwhelming in all 3 zones…I’m still worried that Arteta’s managerial style has coached the footballing instincts right out of our blue chip prospect…let’s face it, for us to be good moving forward, he needs to live up to the hype, whether or not we intend to keep him or use him to fill the coffers

    1. don’t get me wrong, I wish for nothing but great things for our promising youngster….that said, I don’t like his progression under Arteta, as I felt he was a far more threatening and dynamic player in his early days, before our little micro-manager got his hooks into him…ultimately, I can only hope that he comes good, in spite of our static and stifling tactics, and becomes an Arsenal player of historical significance
