Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has been handed some good news on the injury front ahead of the clash with Newcastle United in the Premier League on Sunday.
The Gunners have somehow managed to draw all of their last four games in the Premier League with the latest result coming against Burnley.
Missing in that game at Turf Moor was Sead Kolasinac, who was sidelined yet again in another season which has seen him troubled by various injury problems.
The 26-year-old’s replacement was Bukayo Saka and the youngster also succumbed to an injury as he was withdrawn at the end of the first half.
However, ahead of the clash with Newcastle United this weekend, both Kolasinac and Saka have improved their fitness to ease the woes of Mikel Arteta.
According to Standard Sport journalist Simon Collings, the duo are ‘hoping to be fit’ for Sunday’s league fixture after taking full part in the squad’s Dubai training.
