Arsenal star Bukayo Saka was withdrawn from the Gunners’ goalless draw with Brighton during the dying minutes after picking up an injury that will worry boss Mikel Arteta and England manager Gareth Southgate.

Saka has been one of Arsenal’s brightest players this season but there are now fears that the 20-year-old will be set for a spell on the sidelines.

Saka looked in pain as he hit the turf following a heavy tackle from a Brighton opponent.

The Arsenal physio raced onto the pitch and helped the attacker limp off, where he was replaced by Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

Saka is due to link up with Southgate’s England squad ahead of their upcoming World Cup qualifiers and they will be hoping for a positive injury diagnosis.

Meanwhile, Arsenal were unable to find the breakthrough against Brighton and were held to a goalless draw.
