How Arsenal may line up after international break with Saka and Smith Rowe injury concerns

Midfield – Partey, Xhaka; Odegaard

Arsenal fans feared the worst when Martin Odegaard suffered an ankle injury against Gibraltar last week.

However, the Norwegian has since played 90 minutes against Turkey and 81 against Montenegro, so looks to have shaken off the problem.

Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka have become the go-to pairing for Arteta in midfield, so it should stay that way after the break.

Partey helped Ghana qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations last week and Xhaka has played two full matches for Switzerland ahead of Wednesday’s clash with Finland.
