Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta says forward Bukayo Saka's injury is «a worry» ahead of Sunday's Premier League match against Man City — live on Sky Sports.
Saka limped off holding his leg during Arsenal's Champions League Group B match at French side Lens on Tuesday night.
The 22-year-old was replaced by Fabio Vieira in the 34th minute, having set up the opening goal of the game for Gabriel Jesus to become the first player in Europe's top five leagues to register five goals and assists this season.
When asked about the injury by Norway's TV 2 Sport, Arteta replied: «It doesn't look good.»
Arteta added: «He tried to backheel a ball in the first half. He felt something. It was muscular. He was uncomfortable and we had to take him off.
»We don't know anything more than that. It was big enough not to allow him to play the rest of the game and that is a worry for us."
Arteta was then asked if Saka would be available to face City, and he replied: «I haven't a clue. I don't know».
