Speaking to the press ahead of Arsenal’s game at Old Trafford on Sunday, Mikel Arteta indicated that Oleksandr Zinchenko wouldn’t be fit.

It seems unlikely that he is ready to play after missing training all week with a sprained knee, but his influence on the squad cannot be underestimated, even after such a short time at the club.

Aaron Ramsdale and Martin Odegaard were both doubts with the former picking up what seemed to be a hamstring problem and the latter struggling with bruising after a heavy tackle in the game against Aston Villa.

Should those two be fit to start it is a massive boost for Arsenal who have the chance to go four points clear of Manchester City with a win at Old Trafford.
