Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has provided an update on the availability of captain Martin Odegaard for their upcoming match against Sevilla in the UEFA Champions League. Odegaard has missed Arsenal’s last two matches due to injury, and his presence on the field has been sorely missed by the Gunners.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Arteta stated, “With Martin (Odegaard), it’s still uncertain.” This uncertainty leaves fans and teammates eagerly awaiting news on whether the talented midfielder will be fit to feature in the crucial European clash.

Despite his injury setbacks, Odegaard’s commitment to representing his country remains unwavering. Arteta emphasized this by saying, “Martin loves to play for his country and every time that he’s been called up and been fit, he’s been there. And he will be there if that’s the case.” This dedication highlights Odegaard’s passion for both club and country.

Arsenal currently sits in 4th position on the Premier League table with 24 points in this 2023/24 campaign. Their recent defeat against Newcastle United at St James Park marked their first loss in the league this season. The Gunners will be eager to bounce back from this setback and regain their winning momentum.

The upcoming match against Sevilla holds significant importance for Arsenal as they aim to secure a spot in the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League. The Emirates Stadium will be buzzing with anticipation as fans hope to witness Odegaard’s return to action.

As Arsenal prepares for this crucial encounter, Arteta and his coaching staff will closely monitor Odegaard’s injury situation. His potential inclusion could provide a much-needed boost to Arsenal’s midfield creativity and attacking prowess.

The Gunners’ faithful will anxiously await further updates on Odegaard’s fitness ahead of Wednesday’s match against Sevilla. Regardless of whether he features or not, Arsenal will undoubtedly give their all as they strive for victory in Europe’s elite competition.
