Arsenal have confirmed Bukayo Saka will be available for Sunday’s Premier League clash against Wolves.

The 19-year-old came on as a second-half substitute in the goalless draw with Leeds United last weekend, but hobbled off the pitch in injury time.

Mikel Arteta was pessimistic on Saka’s injury, but the club have stated that the winger only sustained a dead leg.

The England international has been ruled out of Thursday’s Europa League game away at Molde in Norway, but is expected to be available for this weekend’s game against Wolves at the Emirates Stadium.

Both Thomas Partey and Willian also 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.
