Every word Arteta said on Saka and Martinelli injuries, Toney transfer, Ramsdale Arsenal future

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has spoken to the press ahead of the Gunners’ clash with Brentford, including injury news on Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka, Ivan Toney links and Aaron Ramsdale

Not much. We got some players back last Monday and then we had Martinelli and Bukayo with little issues. We’re pretty positive that hopefully they can be part of that. But we’ll have to see how they feel tomorrow.

It’s what it is. He’s fully prepared. He’s training every day. He’s desperate to play like the rest of the boys that haven’t had that many opportunities. Saturday will be a great opportunity for him

He’s been brilliant. He’s been really supportive and pushing in training every day like I expected. It’s a joy to have two top goalkeepers in the team

It was necessary. We had a really tough period before that, we played so many games, we had some defeats when we didn’t deserve to lose, but it was probably necessary to keep improving and demanding from ourselves. The weather and the temperature that we had and the time we had to improve as a team as well. Then everything clicked. We won and then it kept building and that helps.
