"Stop" - Walker spoke to Saka about Arsenal on England duty, the Man City star is worried

The England squad met up at St. George's Park on Monday ahead of the World Cup in Qatar - with Man City's Kyle Walker and Arsenal's Bukayo Saka sharing a funny exchange.

Saka and Arsenal go into the World Cup break as Premier League leaders by five points, and will hold the position at Christmas for the first time since 2008.

On that occasion, Arsene Wenger's Gunners eventually slipped to third place, following a high volume of draws in the second half of the season and the broken leg suffered by Eduardo in February.

This time around, Mikel Arteta's side are desperate to win their first Premier League title since 2004, although they will be chased all the way by Man City.


The second-placed Citizens travel to the Emirates Stadium in the New Year, with their previously postponed match yet to be rearranged.

Inbetween, City and Arsenal stars will play alongside each other for England in Qatar - and Walker and Saka are two of the players likely to be heavily involved.

Walker and Saka share exchange

Prior to the squad setting off for Qatar, England's official YouTube channel uploaded footage of the players arriving at St. George's Park.

The video first shows the likes of Jude Bellingham, James Maddison and Ben White all making their way into the facilities, before Saka arrives.

The Arsenal star embraced Luke Shaw, before high-fiving Walker in the main lobby.

The City right-back then asked Saka: "Are you guys [Arsenal] going to stop winning?"

Saka responded by simply stating: "Don't worry about that, bro. Are you feeling good?"

Of course, the pair's main priority for the next month will be to attempt to help England achieve success in Qatar.

Whilst Saka is fit and raring to go, Walker is still recovering from a muscle injury suffered at the beginning of October.

However, England are confident that the City right-back will be fully fit for the end of the group stages, with Gareth Southgate still to decide his starting XI to take on Iran on November 21 in their opening match.
