Manchester United journalist Samuel Luckhurst has shared a triple injury boost for Arsenal before their trip to Old Trafford this afternoon.
The Lowdown: Initial worry
Speaking in his pre-game press conference ahead of the Premier League match, Mikel Arteta admitted that both Aaron Ramsdale and Martin Odegaard had to be ‘assessed‘ after picking up niggles in the 2-1 win against Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night.
The Spaniard added that Oleksandr Zinchenko had not been able to train with the team yet after missing the previous two games with injury.
The Latest: Trio have travelled
Taking to Twitter, Luckhurst shared that both Odegaard and Ramsdale ‘have travelled’ with the rest of the Arsenal squad to Manchester ahead of this afternoon’s clash.
He added that Zinchenko has also travelled with the team, so the Ukrainian could also potentially feature against the Red Devils.
The Verdict: Big boost
To have all three players potentially available for today’s clash after their respective injury worries is certainly a big boost for Arsenal.
Both Odegaard and Zinchenko rank in the Gunners’ top four performers in the Premier League so far this season, while Ramsdale has managed two clean sheets and is yet to concede away from home (WhoScored).
Should Arsenal start Tierney?
Nonetheless, even if used off of the bench, they could all play a vital part in Arsenal taking all three points against United and further extending their lead at the top of the table.
