Saka, Odegaard, Timber - Arsenal injury news latest ahead of Wolves clash

Martin Odegaard of Arsenal FC talks to teammates during the UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg match between FC Bayern München and Arsenal FC at Allianz Arena on April 17, 2024 in Munich, Germany.

Arsenal will have to get back on the horse quickly as they seek to respond to back-to-back defeats threatening to leave their season short once more. Mikel Arteta's side have gone from being in control of their Premier League fate and in with a shot of a European semi-final, to hanging on.

Defeat to Bayern Munich on Wednesday gives the head coach just two full days of rest to prepare now for what looks to be a tricky domestic trip to Wolves on Saturday. Despite the doom and gloom of the past week, victory would take them top, at least temporarily, with Liverpool not in action until Sunday.

Manchester City could be four points behind by the time they next play due to FA Cup semi-final commitments this weekend. It offers a chance for Arsenal to react.

They will have a nearly fully-fit squad for the match against Gary O'Neill's side at Molineux. Here, has the latest from the Arsenal treatment room.
