Arsenal are hopeful that their star winger, Bukayo Saka, will be fit in time for their crucial upcoming match against Chelsea.
With the ongoing international break, the Gunners have a small window to ensure Saka’s recovery and prepare him for the clash at Stamford Bridge set for October 21st.
Sources from the Evening Standard indicate growing optimism within the club regarding Saka’s return.
The English international is expected to resume training at London Colney by the start of next week.
The North London side had to navigate their recent matches without Saka after he sustained an injury during their Champions League game against Lens.
However, they managed a commendable win against Manchester City over the weekend in his absence.
Manager Mikel Arteta is keen on having Saka available, particularly with pivotal away matches against teams like Chelsea, Sevilla, and Newcastle United on the horizon.
The 22-year-old’s influence on the pitch is undeniable, and while Arsenal boast other talented players like Gabriel Jesus, Leandro Trossard, and Reiss Nelson to cover the flanks, Saka brings a unique dynamism to the team’s play.
The upcoming fixtures will be crucial, and Arteta would undoubtedly prefer to have all his key players, including Saka, at full fitness.
