Arsenal handed boost as Bukayo Saka returns to training after injury scare

Arsenal have been handed a huge injury boost concerning Bukayo Saka and they have taken to their website to provide an update.

The England international went down injured in the 78th minute against Liverpool and had to receive treatment time on his right leg, clearly looking in pain as he hobbled off.

He was eventually replaced by Reiss Nelson, and while Gunners manager Mikel Arteta provided a positive update after the game, there were doubts concerning his availability for the upcoming fixture against West Ham United at the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

However, it appears that Saka will be available for selection as Arsenal have uploaded a picture of him training alongside his teammates on their official website.

The 22-year-old was seen on an exercise bicycle at Sobha Realty Training Centre with others, and it would not surprise the fans given how fit he has been over the years.

Saka has been withdrawn thrice during games this term but has managed to return almost immediately, escaping any long-term injury, and it is safe to say that he will be ready to take on West Ham this weekend.

The Arsenal star has missed just a Premier League game this term, weighing in with eight goals and seven assists in 22 appearances, and he will be eager to add to his tally against the Hammers.

The Gunners moved within two points of the top of the Premier League table following their 3-1 win over Liverpool, and they will be keen to leave the London Stadium with all three points on Sunday.

West Ham are without a win in their last six games across all competitions, and while Arsenal should not expect an easy game, having Saka available remains a massive boost which should help them secure a valuable victory.
