Premier League: Arsenal’s Martin Odegaard clear for League Cup, Lacazette training again after Covid-19- Arsenal’s new signing Martin Odegaard is available for Wednesday’s second-round League Cup game at West Bromwich Albion, while forward Alexandre Lacazette resumed training after his Covid-19 diagnosis, the Premier League club said on Tuesday.
Arsenal is second from the bottom of the table after losing their first two matches and manager Mikel Arteta said the squad had been hit by Covid-19 cases and injuries.
Lacazette was among four players who missed their season-opening loss at newcomers Brentford after testing positive for Covid-19.
Newly-signed center-back Ben White, who contracted the virus before last weekend’s game, is unavailable for Wednesday, with his health being monitored ahead of Saturday’s Premier League match away to champions Manchester City.
Defenders Hector Bellerin, Gabriel Magalhaes and Kieran Tierney and forward Gabriel Martinelli are back in training, but Thomas Partey and Eddie Nketiah won’t be training again until the end of August and early September respectively, Arsenal said.
