Bukayo Saka an injury doubt for Arsenal’s Premier League return vs Everton leaving Mikel Arteta sweating

BUKAYO SAKA has reportedly not recovered from an Achilles problem from last season – leaving Mikel Arteta sweating on his fitness for Arsenal’s game on Sunday.

The winger, who has been outstanding for his club and country in the past 12 months, has been playing through a nagging injury issue.

Saka picked up an Achilles problem at the end of last season.

The 22-year-old saw his form dip at the worst possible time during the Gunners’ run-in for the Premier League title.

Saka scored two goals in the Gunner’s last ten matches allowing Manchester City to slip ahead to snatch the league title.

Arteta hoped a summer of rest with no tournament football would cure the winger’s injury but reports suggest otherwise.

According to the Daily Mail, Saka continues to struggle with the Achilles issue which has made him an injury doubt ahead of Sunday’s clash against Everton.

The winger was named only as a substitute for England‘s 3-1 victory against Scotland on Tuesday.

This came as a massive relief to Arsenal boss Arteta as he has been concerned by the star’s workload.

The Spaniard used Saka in 48 games including every single Premier League match last season.


And Saka has another busy year ahead with England to feature at Euro 2024 after qualifying matches taking place across October and November.

Meanwhile Arsenal have an increased workload having returned to European football this season.

Saka has looked sharp so far this term, scoring two goals in four games.

But there will be concern about his long-term fitness.
