Mikel Arteta provides injury update on three Arsenal stars ahead of Man Utd clash

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal side will look to break into the top four for the first time this season with a win over Manchester United at Old Trafford on Thursday, having lost just one of their last ten matches. But the task could be made harder with the absence of various key stars – including Bukayo Saka who remains touch-and-go for the trip to the faltering Red Devils, with Arteta stating “I am hopeful [for Bukayo] but we don’t know.”

Arsenal endured a nightmare start to the Premier League season by losing their first three games, which resulted in them being the league’s bottom side at the end of August.

Yet since then, the Gunners have become somewhat resurgent by losing just one game since in the 4-0 drubbing at Liverpool in November.

The Spaniard has made them arguably the Premier League’s form side, winning seven of their last ten games to put them well within the hunt for Champions League football.

And in a bid to continue their good form, their next task comes in the form of a United side who are faltering in eighth the league after just one win in eight games.

However, their task has been made harder by the potential absence of Saka – with others stars also set to be out alongside the talented youngster.
