Arsenal upbeat on star pair making Tottenham showdown

Arsenal duo Oleksandr Zinchenko and Martin Odegaard are on track to be fit for the North London derby against Tottenham.

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.

But the Metro reports the pair are on track to make the derby.

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

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.
