- England winger will undergo scan after sustaining leg injury
- Manager hails response after 5-0 rout of Nottingham Forest
Mikel Arteta hopes Bukayo Saka will be fit for the World Cup despite the England attacker being taken off injured during Arsenal’s win against Nottingham Forest.
Saka sustained several kicks to the leg early on at the Emirates Stadium, including a heavy challenge from Renan Lodi, and was treated by the medical staff before resuming playing. But the 21-year-old was in significant discomfort and was substituted after 27 minutes of Arsenal’s 5-0 victory.England’s squad must be named by 13 November with their first World Cup match against Iran eight days later. Saka’s injury scare is a potential blow for Arsenal – with a trip to Chelsea next Sunday – and England.
