There is a major boost for Arsenal ahead of their weekend clash against Manchester City.

Bukayo Saka trained with Arsenal on Monday morning following another injury scare with Thomas Partey joining him after his recent layoff

Saka opened the scoring after 17 minutes as Arsenal eased to a 4-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.

The winger had been an injury doubt having limped off the previous weekend against Tottenham. He was one of a number of players unable to train ahead of the visit to the south coast.

The England international was seen limping in the second-half at the Vitality Stadium and was replaced on 76 minutes by Fabio Vieira.

Mikel Arteta explained post-match Saka had suffered ‘a bad knock’ during the win.

‘I don’t know how he is feeling I haven’t had the chance to speak to him. But hopefully we can get him back,’ Arteta said.

Despite that worrying update, Saka trained as normal on Monday. This is a boost ahead of the midweek Champions League tie against RC Lens with Manchester City looming at the weekend.

Partey was also among those training having not played since the 2-2 draw against Fulham in August. A groin injury has kept the Ghana international out of the side but he is now closing in on a return.

Declan Rice and William Saliba both came through Saturday’s win unscathed after also picking up knocks last week. Vieira was also fit enough to come off the bench. Leandro Trossard was also back among the subs after his recent injury.
