Arsenal are within touching distance of qualifying for the Champions League knockout stages after Leandro Trossard and Bukayo Saka clinched a 2-0 win against Sevilla on Wednesday. Mikel Arteta’s side got back on track after successive domestic defeats thanks to Trossard’s first half opener and Saka’s strike after the break at the Emirates Stadium.
With three wins from four Group B games, Arsenal sit in first place, four points ahead of second-placed PSV Eindhoven. The north Londoners will be certain to reach the last 16 if they take one point from their remaining matches at home to Lens and at PSV.
The only concern for Arteta was the sight of Saka limping off with an injury after appearing to twist his ankle in the closing stages. Saka was subjected to a series of fouls before his injury, but Arteta said the England star had to get used to rough treatment.
“It was just a kick. Hopefully it’s not much. I’m going to assume he will be OK,” he said. “That will happen when wingers take people on. I don’t think it’s going to change with the way he plays. He better get used to it!”
