Arsenal trio Martin Odegaard, Aaron Ramsdale and Oleksandr Zinchenko are available for today’s clash with Manchester United after travelling with the squad.

Odegaard picked up a knock during Wednesday’s 2-1 win over Aston Villa, while Ramsdale was complaining of a muscular leg injury during the game and Zinchenko has missed training all week with a knee injury.

Arsenal start all three to play United this afternoon at Old Trafford, with Mikel Arteta’s side looking to extend their perfect start to the new season.

Speaking about Odegaard and Ramsdale on Friday, Arteta said: “Those two, they have been assessed. We will see more tomorrow. Hopefully they will be available to train with the team.


“Unfortunately with Alex [Zinchenko], that’s still not the case. He’s missed two games and he hasn’t been able to train with the team yet.”

Arsenal are without Mohamed Elneny and Thomas Partey for the game at Old Trafford as the pair remain out injured.

Elneny is expected to be out for “months”, while Partey is facing “weeks” on the sidelines. Reiss Nelson is also in the treatment room.

Arsenal starting XI (4-3-3): Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zincehnko; Odegaard, Lokonga, Xhaka; Saka, Jesus, Martinelli.
