Arsenal squad vs Manchester United leaked as Mikel Arteta handed injury boost with trio pictured at the team hotel

The injury situation for Arsenal has improved ahead of Sunday’s enticing trip to Manchester United.

The Gunners are the only team in English football with a perfect record, having won all five Premier League games this season.

They travel to Old Trafford to face Erik ten Hag’s squad, who are in fine form with three consecutive victories.

Regarding personnel, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta feared he could be obliged to restructure his squad. Two of his most important players will undergo late fitness tests before the trip to Manchester.

Both goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale and captain Martin Odegaard were injured in the midweek victory against Aston Villa. 

While Ramsdale finished the game, Odegaard left with ten minutes remaining. However, both have traveled with the team and will undergo rigorous testing before to Sunday’s game.

If Ramsdale is unable to play, American goalkeeper Matt Turner might make his debut, while Fabio Vieira could do the same if Odegaard is deemed unprepared.

Ramsdale and Odegaard’s presence on the squad bus gives Gunners fans hope that they may play a role in the match.

Oleksandr Zinchenko, who missed the previous two games due to a knee injury, has also traveled north with his colleagues. 

Arteta disclosed on Friday that the Ukrainian had not exercised with the team since his injury, and thus remained a major worry for the match.

“Unfortunately with Alex (Zinchenko), that’s still not the case. He’s missed two games and he hasn’t been able to train with the team yet,” he said. Elsewhere, the defence looks set to remain unchanged whilst the front three of Gabriel Jesus, Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli are almost certain to get the nod once more.

Expected Arsenal starting XI at Old Trafford: Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, Gabriel, Saliba, Tierney; Sambi Lakonga, Xhaka, Odegaard; Saka, Jesus, Martinelli.

Arsenal squad in full: Ramsdale, Turner, White, Soares, Tomiyasu, Holding, Gabriel, Saliba, Marquinhos, Tierney, Zinchenko, Smith, Lokonga, Xhaka, Vieira, Saka, Odegaard, Smith Rowe, Martinelli, Jesus, Nketiah.
