Saka Possibly Injured During Arsenal Win
Arsenal enjoyed a convincing 2-0 win over Sevilla FC last night, Wednesday 8 November, but concerns for Gunners’ Bukayo Saka overshadowed the festivities after he limped off the pitch late into the second half.
The UEFA Champions League (UCL) match was an easy victory for the home side as they dominated the Spanish side at Emirates Stadium in London, England.
Forward Leandro Trossard was first to score when Saka set him up at the 29th-minute mark for an easy goal that put the Gunners ahead. Their superiority continued into the second half.
After 64 minutes elapsed on the clock, Saka scored a second goal for his side, but the kick left him unbalanced and the 22-year-old winger’s other foot slipped, causing discomfort for the remainder of playing time.
Twenty-one minutes later and Saka couldn’t go the full game, opting to gingerly walk off the field with what many assumed to be an ankle injury.
Afterwards, Arteta allayed injury fears by mentioning that it was “just a kick” and his star player had “some discomfort”; he, however, was optimistic that Saka would be in the squad for their next UCL match against Lens at the end of the month.
