Carabao Cup: Saka Out of Arsenal Clash with Brentford 

Arsenal winger, Bukayo Saka, will miss his side’s Carabao Cup tie at Brentford today  and could also be out of Saturday’s league game at Bournemouth.

The 22-year-old England winger suffered a foot injury in the 2-2 draw with Tottenhamon Sunday and was replaced by Emile Smith Rowe just before the final whistle.

“He was limping quite badly after the match,” said Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta.

“We had to get him off the field, which is never a good sign.”

Asked if Saka could miss the Premier League match at Bournemouth, Arteta added: “It’s a possibility, yes.”

The forward has scored four goals and registered three assists from seven games in the Premier League and Champions League this season.

If Saka does miss the game against the Cherries it will end his club-record run of 86 consecutive Premier League appearances.

Arsenal defender Jurrien Timber has a long-term knee injury, while team-mates Thomas Partey, Leandro Trossard and Gabriel Martinelli are also out injured.

Gunners midfielder Declan Rice came off at half-time against Spurs but his back injury is not considered “too serious” by Arteta.
