Arsenal made it back-to-back wins in the Premier League as they beat Brighton & Hove Albion 1-0 at the AMEX Stadium on Tuesday evening.
A second half strike from substitute Alexandre Lacazette, just seconds after stepping off the bench, was enough to seal all three points for the Gunners and lift them up to 13th in the table.
Bukayo Saka, who claimed the assist for Lacazette’s winner, was taken off with nine minutes left to play after sustaining a knock – and Gunners boss Mikel Arteta will be desperate to have the teenager back for the weekend’s trip to West Bromwich Albion.
With that in mind, here is all the very latest on Saka’s condition and a round-up of all the very latest Gunners injury news.

The Brazilian centre-back, who joined the Gunners from French outfit Lille during the summer, will miss Saturday’s trip to West Bromwich Albion after being confirmed to have tested positive for Covid-19 earlier this week.
Gabriel missed Saturday’s clash with Chelsea after being forced to self-isolate, following the news that someone he had been in close contact with had tested positive for the virus. Now, Gabriel has tested positive himself, meaning he must spend a period of time in self-isolation.
After missing last night’s clash with Brighton, he will also miss the tussle with West Brom.
Fellow centre-back Luiz is another player within the Arsenal squad that has recently been forced into a period of self-isolation after being told that he had also been in contact with someone that had tested positive for Covid-19.
However, Luiz, himself, has not been confirmed to have contracted the virus. He missed the trip to Brighton, though, with Arsenal confirming on Monday that he will not return to team training until New Year’s Eve (Thursday).
