Arsenal star missing from training ahead of Man Utd clash, another wearing strapping on his leg

Arsenal return to Premier League action on Sunday with a trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United in their penultimate game of the season.

The Gunners strolled to a 3-0 victory against Bournemouth on Saturday and will fancy their chances against a Red Devils side that lost 4-0 against Crystal Palace last night.

However, there are some injury scares for manager Mikel Arteta to contend with ahead of the game.

According to Sky Sports, Japanese defender Takehiro Tomiyasu was absent from Arsenal training at Sobha Realty Training Centre on Tuesday morning. However, he could rejoin the squad later.

Bukayo Saka was also seen wearing strapping on his leg following the cut he sustained against the Cherries but does not appear to be in any form of pain or discomfort.

The England international was later withdrawn in the 86th minute but is expected to be available to face Man United.

Arsenal lead the Premier League table by a point having played one more game than Man City. They face Everton on the last day of the season.

The Gunners need to win their remaining two games and hope the reigning champions drop points when they take on Fulham, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United.

Arsenal have no other injury worries with Jurrien Timber finally back with the senior squad.

They cannot afford to be without any of their key players right now and will be feeling pretty confident ahead of their last two games.
