  • Trossard missed Thursday night's 2-2 Europa League draw

Mikel Arteta resisted the urge to take Jesus to Portugal for the Gunners' Europa League clash at Sporting CP on Thursday night, but sources have told GOAL that the 25-year-old could make his return at Craven Cottage on Sunday afternoon.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Jesus' return would be a major boost to Arsenal, who could also have Trossard back available following a groin injury. The Belgian forward limped off during the win at Bournemouth last weekend, but is set to be included in the squad to take on Marco Silva's side.

AND WHAT'S MORE: Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard, who was forced to sit out the game in Lisbon on Thursday night after falling sick before kick-off, is also set to make the squad for Sunday's crucial clash at Craven Cottage as Arteta's side look to respond to Manchester City's 1-0 win at Crystal Palace.
