Arsenal appear to drop potential squad selection hint for Liverpool game
An insight into who could be named in Arsenal’s squad for their upcoming clash with Liverpool has seemingly been provided on Tuesday evening.
Martin Odegaard back in training
Some potential selection hints have already been provided this evening, with Goal reporting that Martin Odegaard, who was out with Covid-19, has now returned to training.
They added that Arsenal are hopeful that some of the players who have been sidelined through injury – such as Emile Smith Rowe and Takehiro Tomiyasu – could be fit enough to return, whilst Bukayo Saka, Kieran Tierney and Calum Chambers are also hopeful of being passed fit:
Martin Odegaard has returned to training (as have others) ahead of Thursday night’s semi-final.
As it stands, Arsenal are in no doubt that the Liverpool game will go ahead, even with Mari and Kolasinac set to leave.

Arsenal drop hint over Liverpool squad?
Now, a further potential selection hint looks to have been provided by Arsenal.
The Gunners’ under-23s are set to face off with Bournemouth on Tuesday evening.
Before the game, they would release their matchday squad:

Notably, both Charlie Patino and Salah Oulad M’Hand were left out of the eleven and the subs bench.
Given the former was on the bench vs Nottingham Forest earlier this month and Patino has featured in the League and FA Cup this season, it is probably safe to assume that said duo will likely be in the squad on Thursday given their absences this evening.
