Arsenal handed double injury boost for Brentford trip

Martin Odegaard news

Arsenal handed double boost for weekend's derby

Arsenal have been handed a double injury boost with Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Jesus expected to return for the Brentford trip after the international break.

Odegaard has been sidelined with a hip problem in recent weeks but Norway manager recently said that he could return for the Premier League clash against the Bees.

It is now reported that the club captain has started training and he could make the matchday squad this weekend. Meanwhile, the Gunners have received a further boost.

Jesus is expected to start for Brazil in today's World Cup qualifier against Argentina after recovering from a hamstring injury picked up versus Sevilla on the road last month.

Brazil picked the forward despite Arsenal urging for caution and the fans will be hoping that he does not sustain a fresh injury in tonight's crucial clash against Argentina.

Arsenal have had a bright start to the Premier League campaign and they are currently just one point behind leaders Manchester City after 12 games into the season.
