Arsenal make the trip to Newcastle United for tomorrow’s Premier League clash.
The Gunners are seven points behind the European places with just five games left, and their focus could lie on their Europa League campaign.
They are trailing 2-1 after the away leg of the semi-final tie against Villarreal, and will be aiming to make amends on Thursday.
Owing to this, manager Mikel Arteta could be tempted to make wholesale changes for the clash against the Magpies at St James’ Park.
Bernd Leno made a blunder against Everton last week which gifted the Toffees with three points. He made amends in midweek with a vital save against Villarreal at 2-0. The German is likely to start between the sticks.
Odegaard needs continuity to find form after his injury absence. Eddie Nketiah appears set to lead the line with Alexandre Lacazette unavailable, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is not deemed fit to start.
Predicted Arsenal line-up (4-2-3-1): Bernd Leno; Hector Bellerin, David Luiz, Gabriel Magalhaes, Cedric Soares; Dani Ceballos, Mohamed Elneny; Willian, Martin Odegaard, Gabriel Martinelli; Eddie Nketiah.
