Massive injury boost for Arsenal ahead of Man Utd clash as Zincheko, Odegaard and Ramsdale seen arriving at team hotel
ARSENAL have had a huge boost ahead of the tantalising clash against Manchester United on Sunday.
Skipper Martin Odegaard, Olesandr Zinchenko and keeper Aaron Ramsdale are all off the treatment table and with the match day squad in Manchester.
The in-form Red Devils are set to provide them with their toughest test of the season so far.
But on Friday, boss Mikel Arteta highlighted the injury concerns for the unbeaten side.
Arteta said: “Ramsdale and Odegaard have been assessed and we will see more.
“Hopefully, they’ll be available to train with the team. Zinchenko missed two games and has not been able to train with the team yet.”
Captain Odegaard limped off with an ankle injury during the 2-1 victory over Aston Villa on Wednesday.
He has led his team-mates to four wins out of four games in the Prem this season and is excelling just a year after he joined in a £30million move from Real Madrid.
The Norwegian international should slot back into his midfield role.
Ramsdale also looked uncomfortable during the win, so American keeper Matt Turner was set to replace him on Sunday.

But to have the shot stopping No1 in net will be a huge lift for the Gunners.
Ramsdale has been a revelation in North London since joining last year.
Arteta knows he has a strong personality in the 23-year-old, and relies on him to shake the changing room up.
Kieran Tierney has played left-back for the past two games but after a long lay-off, three games in a week is a lot to ask.
So expect summer signing Zinchenko to slot back in at full-back if he is fully fit.
