Arsenal have received a boost after hearing positive news on club captain, Martin Odegaard’s injury which has kept him out of action over the last month.

The midfielder was originally sidelined due to a hip problem which was the main reason why he has withdrawn from international duty over the next week with Norway. The injury has meant Odegaard has missed games against Newcastle, Sevilla and Burnley with his only game time coming in a 10 minute cameo in the Carabao Cup against West Ham.

However according to The Standard, it now appears Martin Odegaard was unavailable for the game against Burnley due to a concussion suffered in training ahead of the St. James’ Park trip. This is a big boost for Arsenal with the Norwegian now expected to return well rested and fully fit once the break is over.
