Mikel Arteta has provided an update on Gabriel Jesus, Martin Odegaard and Ben White ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League clash against Brentford.

The Gunners resume their Premier League title challenge with a trip to the Gtech Community Stadium on Saturday evening – just hours after Manchester City face Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium.

Arsenal could take advantage in the title race if City and Liverpool take points off each other, with the likes of Jesus and Odegaard expected to return to the starting XI against the Bees.

Speaking to the media in his press conference on Friday morning

Arsenal boss said: “He [Jesus] is available. He played 96 mins in a really competitive match.

“He had a long flight. I have to see the condition.”

When asked if the Norwegian playmaker will be available against Thomas Frank’s side

Arteta responded: “Hopefully yes. We have another training session today.”

As for White, Arteta is hopeful the defender will be passed fit in time to face Brentford.

“Hopefully if he’s able to train today he’ll be in contention,” the Arsenal boss said when asked about White’s fitness.

“We’ll find out in the next 24 hours,”Arteta added.

Arteta is currently without Thomas Partey, Jurrien Timber and Emile Smith Rowe. However, Takehiro Tomiyasu could continue in place of White in defence if the 26-year-old is unavailable for selection.
