Football.London have claimed that Martin Odegaard and Oleksandr Zinchenko could be available to start against Tottenham on October 1.
Tottenham’s 6-2 win over Leicester City on Saturday saw Antonio Conte’s men temporarily move in front of their North London rivals but the Gunners eased to a 3-0 win over Brentford on Sunday to move back to the top of the table.
This means just a point separates the two sides ahead of the all-important clash at the Emirates at the start of next month.
The game will be seen as an acid test for both Arsenal and Spurs to see if either of them could potentially keep pace with Manchester City this season at the top end of the Premier League table.
Arsenal missed both Odegaard and Zinchenko for their clash at the Brentford Community Stadium on Sunday, with Arteta confirming to Sky Sports that both missed out due to injuries.
Football.London have now claimed there is a possibility of both players returning in time for the clash against Spurs. The report adds that should the Norwegian and Ukrainian be passed fit, they are both likely to come straight into the starting eleven for the clash.

Arsenal are certainly a much better team with Odegaard, and so, it would be a huge boost to Areta’s men if the 23-year-old is back fit.
The clash against the Gunners will certainly be our biggest test of the season so far, and I suspect Conte will be happy to take a point if you offered it to him now.
