Mikel Arteta has confirmed Bukayo Saka will undergo a scan on Sunday to determine the extent of the injury he sustained during this afternoon’s win over Newcastle.

The Gunners bounced back from last week’s defeat against Liverpool with a routine win over Eddie Howe’s relegation threatened side thanks to second half goals from Saka and his replacement Gabriel Martinelli.

Saka opened the scoring 11 minutes after the interval with a crisp low shot, but was unable to continue when he appeared to sustain a hip injury.

Arsenal face a testing trip to Old Trafford on Thursday and Arteta is hopeful that Saka will be fit enough to feature.

He said: ‘He was uncomfortable to continue. We will have to probably scan him tomorrow and see if there’s any injury there.’
