Video: Arteta admits Odegaard may miss Europa League second-leg

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.

Who is Arsenal’s best front four if he doesn’t make it next Thursday?

    Very disappointing news and coupled with the absence of Tierney makes it a double blow at a crucial time of the season.With regard to our “front four”, to the best of my knowledge we have never played with a front four for some considerable time, but if you mean who will undertake the number ten role, then it has to be ESR .As for the front three for the return in Prague, may I suggest, Saka, Auba and Pepe in that order.
