Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has claimed that he expects to be without midfielder Martin Odegaard for one to two matches, meaning he could well miss next week’s crunch match with Slavia Prague.
The Norwegian international had to be subbed off during the first of three matches for Norway recently, and the manager since confirmed that he hasn’t fully recovered from that.
Arteta has now confirmed that he doesn’t expect a return for Odegaard this weekend, and possibly not before the Europa League also.
