Arsenal duo Oleksandr Zinchenko and Martin Odegaard should be fit for the North London Derby next weekend, according to a report.

Zinchenko missed the Gunners’ 3-0 win over Brentford on on Sunday after a brief period back in the team after injury, while captain Odegaard was also absent from the game after picking up a knock.

According to the Metro, however, both are set to return to the squad for the crunch tie with rivals Tottenham, which could see Mikel Arteta’s side extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table to four points.

Zinchenko has missed three Premier League games this season after struggling with a calf problem

He returned to the Gunners squad for their 3-1 defeat to Manchester United, but missed the game at the Brentford Community Stadium after picking up another knock.

He missed Ukraine’s 3-0 defeat against Scotland last night, and is also expected to sit out of his side’s game against Armenia later this international break.

Odegaard, meanwhile, also missed the Brentford game with a knock, but it is not thought his calf issue is serious.

The 23-year-old is currently being examined by Arsenal’s medical staff in London, but could yet join up with Norway for their fixtures this international break.

Arsenal have started the season in fine form and are top of the league after seven games, winning six and losing one of their matches so far.

They will not be helped however by the game next weekend being Saturday’s early kick-off, and face tough tests against Tottenham and then Liverpool after a kind start to the season fixture wise.

But Arteta’s side seem to have bounced back from last season’s disappointment of missing out on the Champions League, having also won their one Europa League game so far.
