Saka withdraws from England duty

Arsenal attacker Bukayo Saka has withdrawn from international duty with England as a precaution.

The Gunners graduate has been in fantastic form for the Gunners this term, registering 16 goals and 15 assists in all competitions.

He remains crucial to the club's prospects of winning the Premier League and there are no surprises that he has withdrawn from England duty.

Saka has been carrying a minor Achilles problem throughout the season and he has made the right choice to return for rehabilitation.

Arsenal have been in splendid form since the turn of the year and they are top of the table after winning eight league games on the trot.

They are currently only goal difference ahead of Liverpool at the top of the table and much work to do to end their long title drought.

The club will be in action against Manchester City on the road on March 30. It would be a huge statement if they end up on the winning side.
