In a sigh of relief for Arsenal fans, Bukayo Saka, who hobbled off the pitch during the Premier League clash against Bournemouth over the weekend, has returned to training. The versatile player, who left the field in the 76th minute, is expected to be available for the upcoming midweek Champions League fixture against Lens.
Saka’s swift recovery comes as good news for Arsenal, as he showcased his resilience by actively participating in the training session on Monday. His potential inclusion in the lineup for the Champions League encounter is a positive development for the Gunners, who are counting on his skills to make an impact.
Adding to Arsenal’s optimism is the return of Thomas Partey to the training ground. The midfielder, who had been sidelined due to a groin injury sustained just before the match against Manchester United last month, is back after a prolonged absence. While he may not have completed the full 90 minutes, Saka made a significant contribution by scoring the opening goal in Arsenal’s commanding 4-0 victory over Bournemouth. This win propelled the team to the third position on the league table, just a point behind current leaders Manchester City.
As the Gunners gear up for their Champions League clash against Lens, the return of key players like Saka and Partey adds depth to the squad and raises hopes for a strong performance. Arsenal enthusiasts will be eagerly anticipating their involvement in the crucial midweek fixture that could shape the team’s trajectory in both domestic and international competitions.
