Team news

Arsenal have been dealt a blow with Martin Odegaard set to miss the trip to Sheffield United on Sunday.

The Norwegian missed Thursday’s draw with Slavia Prague in the Europa League after picking up an ankle problem on international duty.

The issue is now set to keep Odegaard out of this weekend’s clash against the Blades while he may also miss the return leg in the Czech Republic.

When asked about the Real Madrid loanee’s availability, Arteta said: “We don’t know.

“He wasn’t able to play today and he will be out, I think, for the next game or two. But we don’t know yet.”

Calum Chambers remains a doubt for Sheffield United after he missed the midweek draw with Slavia due to a knock.
