Expert exposes Arteta’s main worry at the moment with Odegaard mentioned

Ben Dinnery, who runs the Premier Injuries website and has a history in injuries and data analysis, believes that Mikel Arteta’s primary concern at the moment at Arsenal is his captain Martin Odegaard and his international commitment with his native Norway.

The skipper was suffering from a calf issue before to the international call.

This was confirmed by Norway head coach Stale Solbakken, who stated that Odegaard was “not doing well” but may still play in the coming days.

This might be a huge issue for Arteta, as he would prefer not to lose Odegaard to injury a second time.

“Every manager is worried when he sees his players go off on international duty,” he told Football Insider’s Adam Williams.

“They will hope the players are managed correctly and that they come back fit and healthy.

“Arteta’s focus is purely going to be on Arsenal. If Odegaard can get some minutes and come through those matches unscathed, great. That will be a benefit in terms of a little bit of sharpness.

“But it’s not in his control, so he will be a little worried because their objectives are different.

“As an international manager, if you’re not getting results, you’re going to be judged on that. Odegaard is one of the best players in that team, so you will want him to be a part of it. So, yes, it’s always a concern.”
