Odegaard, Saka, Xhaka: Arsenal's latest team news and injury updates as players are in international duty

Arsenal players are currently on international duty and set to return by April 3, when the Gunners take on Liverpool. So ahead of that game, let's take a look at the latest team news and injury updates. Bukayo Saka was called up to the England squad for the World Cup qualifiers, however the FA announced that Saka still hasn't joined up with Gareth Southgate's squad at St. George's Park due to injury. "The #ThreeLions are out at training, with 24 players involved," they said in a tweet. "Marcus Rashford sits out to continue his rehabilitation. "While Bukayo Saka is still with his club for further assessment on an on-going issue but it is hoped he will join up with the squad later this week." Arsenal have survived an injury scare after Martin Odegaard was injured during international duty with Norway. The midfielder picked up an injury in the 40th minute against Gibraltar, and he had to be replaced. After Norway completed a 3-0 win against Gibraltar, head coach Ståle Solbakken gave Arsenal fans the news they were waiting for, confirming the injury was 'not serious'. "I twisted my ankle, but I think I will be fit for the game against Turkey Saturday," later said Odegaard. Elsewhere, Willian missed the clash with Olympiacos with a tight calf problem. He has since been spotted in training this week, which would suggest he is in contention to face Liverpool. Granit Xhaka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were substituted during the West Ham game, but it's understood those changes were tactical rather than injury related.
