Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka only sustained a dead leg in the 0-0 draw against Leeds United and will be available for the game against Wolves this weekend.
There was concern that he had picked up a more serious injury when he had to be taken off in the closing stages of the game at Elland Road and this latest development has come as a huge relief to fans on Twitter:
Our best player right now thank god he is okay

Saka did sit out the game against Molde last night but the fact that he will only miss one game is a massive boost for manager Mikel Arteta and his team.
The 19-year-old has been one of the standout performers for the Gunners so far this campaign and to lose him for any length of time would have been a big blow. It will be hoped that he will return to the starting line up on Sunday and add an extra dimension to Arsenal’s attacking play.
