Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has been putting his players through their paces ahead of Thursday’s Europa League meeting with Bodo/Glimt.
The Gunners are in fine form, sitting top of the Premier League table and boasting North London bragging rights.
Arsenal have also got off to a fine start in Europe, beating FC Zurich in their first Group A encounter.
With games coming in thick and fast, Arteta could well rotate his starting XI for Thursday’s match at the Emirates.
Evening Standard reporter Simon Collings was at London Colney on Wednesday with an update.
He claimed on Twitter that he couldn’t see Oleksandr Zinchenko in training.
However, Collings added that he was told any absences from the session are “mainly” precautionary.
Zinchenko played 73 minutes for Arsenal against Tottenham, his first game back from a calf injury.
He looked a little off the pace, which isn’t surprising, so it makes sense for him to sit out Wednesday’s session.
And you’d think Arteta won’t start him against Bodo/Glimt either, what with the huge fixture against Liverpool on Sunday.
Zinchenko is a “phenomenal” player and it’s imperative that his fitness is managed properly at present.
