After the international break, Martin Odegaard should be ready for Arsenal vs Brentford.
Since coming off the bench in the Carabao Cup loss to West Ham United at the beginning of the month, the captain of the Gunners has not appeared in any games.
He has missed the last three games for his team due to a hip issue, and last week he pulled out of the Norway squad for the matches against Scotland and the Faroe Islands.
Prior to the international break, Arteta expressed optimism that his captain will return for Saturday’s trip to Brentford.
‘I’ve just come from a 45-minute talk with Martin,’ Solbakken told a press conference. ‘He is getting better and better and gradually stepping up. It has been more or less three weeks without any special training, so it is important to take things step by step.
This season, Odegaard has five goals and one assist. With Thomas Partey out until next year, Arteta has been dealing with several injury concerns leading up to the international break.
Erik ten Hag is anxious to prevent Jadon Sancho from making a “empty gesture,” therefore Manchester United is apparently willing to accept a “significant loss” on him.
Sancho has a disruptive impact on the rest of United’s team, according to manager Ten Hag, who is determined to get rid of the winger.
This season, Sancho and Ten Hag had a nasty falling out, with the Dutchman publicly criticizing his player in the media for his lack of effort in practice. After spending £73 million on him in 2021, United is now willing to suffer a “significant loss” on the player in the January transfer window.
