Press conference

What's the latest on Saka and Smith Rowe?

Mikel Arteta faced the media for the first time since the end of the international break on Thursday morning.

The boss was quizzed about a range of topics ahead of Saturday's game against Liverpool - but two key talking points were Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe.

Bukayo remained with the club during the international break, while Emile played in two of England's Under-21 games at the European Championship before missing the final game.

So what's the latest?

"Bukayo hasn't trained with the team yet," Arteta said. "He's been doing some individual work. 

"We had to pull him out of the England squad, unfortunately. He's feeling better, but he hasn't trained with the team yet.

"Emile has some discomfort in his hip and that's why they decided to keep him out. 

"We will see today how he comes here, we will speak with the doctors and the physios and see if he is available for training tomorrow."
