EPL: Arteta gives Saka, Partey injury updates ahead of Everton clash

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has dismissed injury concerns over Bukayo Saka ahead of their Premier League trip to Everton on Sunday.

The Gunners have lost on their three visits to Goodison Park, winning just one of their last seven fixtures there.

But Arteta’s men go into the game unbeaten this season, on the back of a 3-1 win over Manchester United.

There had been fears that Saka would miss the trip to Everton due to a niggling Achilles problem.

But in his Friday press conference, Arteta insisted there are no fresh injury worries: “Bukayo is fine. He trained normally today, so there’s nothing to report there.

“Every player has pains or issues, but it’s nothing to worry about. They all came back well and trained today, so they are in a good place.”

On Partey, Arteta said the Ghana midfielder is still a “few weeks away” from returning.
