Wahi (20) Arsenal downgraded when Saka had to come off with injury: – He doesn’t look good

(Lens – Arsenal 2-1) Elie Wahi provided an assist and his first goal against Arsenal. The loss may have caused an additional headache for coach Mikel Arteta, who had to replace star player Bukayo Saka after half an hour.


Firstly, Martin Odegaard and the Arsenal team had flight problems on their way to France, and did not get any points either.

It was a nightmare night for the English team, who had to see star player Bukayo Saka substituted after half an hour due to injury, and then see 20-year-old youngster Ilie Wahi secure Arsenal’s first defeat of the season.

– Doesn’t look good. We just had to get him out. “It was a big setback for us,” Arteta told TV 2 about Saka after the match, adding that this time it was a muscle injury that occurred.

To TNT Sports The trainer explains:

– It happened in one job. He felt something right then, and he was so uncomfortable that he couldn’t continue. “I don’t know if he will play in the game on the weekend,” he said.

Injury: Bukayo Saka's injury was serious against Lis.

Arsenal took an early lead after a mistake by the home team in their own half, but Lens responded in kind less than ten minutes later.

Behind the score was Wahi, who acrobatically passed the ball to Adrian Thomassen, who fired the ball into the far corner.

In the second half, the young man scored the decisive goal.

This came after Polish player Przemyslaw Frankowski rushed from the right side and passed a cross to Wahi, who shot the ball into the goal.

This was Wahi’s first goal for the club. He was included from Montpellier last season after scoring 19 goals in 32 matches.

– Mark the name. TV 2 commentator Andre Olaf Osnes said the young man lives up to his reputation.

First score: Elie Wahi scores Lens' goal, 2-1, amid huge cheers from the home team's fans.

Saka has set the tone for Arsenal so far this season, and was also the player in the driver’s seat when Arsenal took an early lead in the first half.

Saka took advantage of a weak support pass to put Gabriel Jesus in a good position to shoot the ball into the right corner.

This is Saka’s fifth assist in all competitions so far, in addition to scoring five goals.

Injured: Here, Gabriel Jesus celebrates scoring in the second consecutive Champions League match with his teammate Bukayo Saka, who was substituted after half an hour.

Saka’s injury is likely to be bad news for Arsenal, who face Erling Braut Haaland and his Manchester City side in a big game this weekend.

There was great excitement about whether Saka would be ready for the match against Lens after he suffered a knock against Bournemouth in the previous match in the league.

On Monday, Arteta was as quiet as a lawnmower:

– he is fine. It’s much better. He said: It was a big shock, but he recovered well and is training with us now.

Martin Odegaard started for Arsenal in the match against Lens, but was substituted after 80 minutes of play.

The loss means that Lens is at the top of the group with four points. Arsenal fell to second place with three points.

Behind him follow Sevilla and Eindhoven with two points and one point.
