Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka will be available for Sunday’s Premier League clash against Wolves after only suffering a dead leg in last weekend’s 0-0 draw with Leeds United.

The 19-year-old hobbled off the pitch in injury time at Elland Road after coming on as a second-half substitute for Joe Willock.

Mikel Arteta was pessimistic on Saka’s injury, but Arsenal have confirmed that the winger went off with a dead leg and will only miss Thursday’s Europa League game against Molde in Norway.

The England international will be available for selection in time for this weekend’s game against Wolves at the Emirates Stadium.

Thomas Partey and Willian also both miss the trip to Molde as their injuries continue to be assessed.

Partey suffered a thigh injury in the 3-0 loss to Aston Villa before the international break and was absent for Arsenal’s last Premier League outing.

Willian picked up a minor calf issue in the Leeds draw, but the Brazilian may be fit to face Wolves.

Meanwhile, Mohamed Elneny and Sead Kolasinac are unavailable for Thursday’s game after testing positive for coronavirus during the international break.

David Luiz, who missed Sunday’s game against Leeds due to the birth of his daughter, has been included in the travelling squad for the Molde clash.

Mikel Arteta’s side go into Thursday’s game at the top of Group B after winning all three of their Europa League games so far.

However, the Gunners have been far less convincing in the Premier League and sit in 12th place in the table after nine games.
