Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka returned to first team training on Thursday as the Gunners will face West Ham on Sunday.

The Hale End graduate picked up a niggle against Manchester United and was eventually subbed off in the 74th minute. Arsenal won the match 3-1 at their home and revived their chances of securing Top 4.

In the post-match presentation, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta conveyed that Saka needs medical assessment. It appears now that he recovered within time and engaged in the training session conducted on Thursday.

Arsenal’s official webiste uploaded a training video in which Saka actively participated. He looked quite fit and might start in Arsenal’s 2nd London derby in last 3 matches.

Saka recent exploits for Arsenal

The English international has been quite contributory in the last couple of matches for the North London outfit. He scored from the penalty spot against Chelsea. Against Manchester United, he earned the shooting chance from the spot in the box and converted it. Other than that, he has also excelled from open play cresting ample chances for his teammates and giving opposition defenders a hard time.

His availability will come as a huge boost for Arsenal as Arteta and his boys will look to strengthen their foothold for the 4th position. Based on recent form at the London Stadium Arsenal won only once in last 3 visits. They would once again rely on Saka’s brilliance where his performance from right wing could be crucial to earn all 3 points.

Arsenal, currently placed 4th in the points table are 2 points ahead of their North London rivals Tottenham. Both the teams are in the race to secure the all-coveted 4th position that assures a chance to play Champions League football. Tottenham have a fairly more difficult route including a trip to Anfield where they have to face 2nd placed Liverpool. Not to mention, the North London derby on 12th of May will be pivotal for both in this context.
