Mikel Arteta provides post-Manchester United injury update at Bukayo Saka

Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta provided, on Saturday evening, an update on the welfare of star striker Bukayo Saka.

Saturday’s hosts were eager for victory with 20 minutes remaining, when Granit Xhaka speared a stunning long-range shot past David de Gea’s clutches:
