Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has hinted that their captain Martin Odegaard could potentially miss their upcoming game against Newcastle United on Saturday. In a recent interview with Sky Sports, Arteta stated, “Ødegaard will train today, and if he’s fine, he will be ready.”

Odegaard, who has been a key player for Arsenal this season, has scored three goals and provided one assist in the Premier League so far. However, the Norwegian midfielder was absent from Arsenal’s recent Premier League fixture.

Currently sitting in second position on the Premier League table with 24 points in the 2023/24 campaign, Arsenal suffered a disappointing defeat in the Carabao Cup against West Ham United at London Stadium. The match ended 3-1 in favor of the Hammers, resulting in Arsenal’s elimination from the competition at the round of 16 stage.

Looking ahead to their next challenge, Arsenal will face Newcastle United at St James Park on Saturday. However, there are concerns about Odegaard’s availability for this crucial league encounter.

Arteta’s comments suggest that Odegaard’s participation will depend on his fitness following training. The absence of their captain would undoubtedly be a blow for Arsenal as they aim to maintain their strong position in the league table.

As fans eagerly await further updates on Odegaard’s condition, it remains to be seen whether he will be fit enough to feature against Newcastle United.
