Highlights: Nketiah brace helps Arsenal beat Leeds | Video | News

Ben White’s hamstring injury kept him out for the second game in a row on Sunday, while Bukayo Saka was withdrawn in the second half of our 2-1 win over Leeds.

After the game Mikel Arteta provided positive updates on the pair.

This is what he said in the post-match press conference…

on Saka’s fitness…
Yeah, he was fine.

on players suffering during matches…
This is football, if you look at what happened a few days ago in Madrid, there are things that nobody can explain but this is the beauty of this match, and suffering unfortunately for all of us, especially for the managers, it’s part of it.

on whether White will be fit for the north London derby…
I think so, he’s been starting to do a little bit of work now on the pitch and we want everybody available because we know that game is so important.
