Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is sweating on the fitness of Bukayo Saka ahead of Friday's clash with Aston Villa.

The Gunners winger was forced off during Monday's draw with Crystal Palace after a strong challenge from James McArthur.

"He hasn't trained yet, so again we have to assess him today and see how he is," Arteta said in his pre-match press conference.

"It is down to the doctors and himself to see how he recovers and how he feels when he trains today and tomorrow. He is very important, he has shown how important he is for the team."
