Arsenal return to action this coming weekend with an away clash vs London rivals, Brentford. With Manchester City and Liverpool facing each other on Saturday, a win for Mikel Arteta’s side could be huge for their title charge.
The Gunners head into the game as favourites and can be backed at 4/5 with bet365 to pick up the win.
Martin Odegaard injury update
Prior to taking on the Bees, Arsenal have been given some good news on the Martin Odegaard front.
Odegaard has missed the Gunners’ last three games due to concussion protocols after being hit in the face by a ball in training.
The midfielder was, as a result, left out of the Norway squad for this international break ahead of their games with the Faroe Island and Scotland. He has also been managing a hip issue and it was decided he would be best served fully recovering at Arsenal.
Odegaard has since worked on his recovery in north London and when Arsenal are back in action on Saturday, they hope to have Odegaard available.
The Gunners are also expected to have Gabriel Jesus in the squad for their trip across London, as he is back in full training with Brazil and in contention to start their World Cup qualifier against Argentina.
