When asked about Saka’s condition after Arsenal’s latest win, Arteta replied: ‘I don’t know, he had to come off, he had some discomfort in his thigh.

‘It’s the last thing that we need because we’re missing some big players at the moment and we don’t want to lose another one.

‘I don’t know the extent. I think for Thursday David [Luiz] will be out, Kieran [Tierney] will be out, Emile and Martin we don’t know yet.

And Bukayo we’ll see how he will develop in the next few days.

Asked if there’s a chance of Odegaard and Smith Rowe returning for the game, Arteta replied: ‘I don’t know. I want to think yes but if I’m honest I don’t know.’
